A night after scoring 3 runs in the bottom of the eighth to rally for a win, Kane County gave up 3 runs in the top of the eighth and lost.

The Beloit Snappers rallied for 3 runs off Santiago Garrido and beat the Cougars on Friday in the middle game of a three-game series at Elfstrom Stadium.

The Cougars did all of their scoring early and with homers. Cheslor Cuthbert blasted a 2-run shot in the third, and Travis Jones cracked a 2-run shot in the fourth.
