Megan Wiggins led off the first with a single and advanced on an Amber Patton sacrifice bunt. She was driven in on Folden's double to left-center.

Folden struck again in the second after a walk to Tammy Williams and singles from Danielle Zymkowitz and Amber Patton, accounting for all the runs the Bandits needed.

Snappers 7, Cougars 2:

For the first time so far in the second half of the season, the Kane County Cougars never enjoyed a lead as they fell to the Beloit Snappers at Elfstrom Stadium.

Leondy Perez (2-8), who was looking for his 10th quality start in 11 tries, gave up a season-high 7 runs on 7 hits in 4⅔ innings in the loss.

Other than a rain-shortened outing in Fort Wayne in early June, it was Perez's shortest performance since late April.

A triple by Brett Eibner and an RBI single by Jake Kuebler briefly tied the game at 1-1.

But the Snappers scored 3 in the third and 3 more in the fifth to make it 7-1. The Cougars managed the game's final run in the eighth on a run-scoring double by Brian Fletcher.

The Cougars' offense totaled 6 hits and snapped its streak of consecutive games with a home run at eight.

Hermsen (7-6) got the win and combined with a pair of relievers to strike out 14 Cougars.

Outlaws 7, Fielders 0:

For the first time this season, the Lake County Fielders (19-12) failed to score a run, as they lost their fourth consecutive game to the Chico Outlaws (13-18) Friday night.

It also was the first time the Fielders were limited to scoring fewer than 2 runs in a game.
