The final road series of the First Half began with a 6-3 Snappers loss to the LumberKings on Tuesday. Clinton scored three unearned runs in the bottom of the eighth inning that proved to be the difference. The home team has now won nine of the 10 total games of the season series between the Snappers and LumberKings.

Trailing 2-0 after four innings, Collin Theroux hit an equalizing two-run home run, his 10th of the year. Clinton regained the lead in the sixth inning on a solo home run by the Mariners No. 14 prospect Bryson Brigman off Joseph Camacho making his season debut. After an error in the field by the Snappers Edwin Diaz in the eighth, Clinton plated a run on a wild pitch and two more on a single by Gareth Morgan to boost the LumberKings to a 6-2 advantage.

Brandon Bailey went the first five on the hill for Beloit and fanned six Clinton batters. Aside from the home run and losing decision, Camacho retired six of the eight hitters he faced. Miguel Mercedes and Kyle Nowlin each hit two-out doubles in the ninth inning to trim the lead down to three. Mercedes now leads the team with 15 doubles and Nowlin went 2-for-4 with an RBI in his second straight two-hit game.
