Geulin Beltre drove in the first and last runs of Monday's game to help the Kane County Cougars snap a five-game losing streak.

Beltre's game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth led the Cougars to a 6-5 victory over the Great Lakes Loons at Elfstrom Stadium as the Cougars ended their season-high nine-game homestand with a 4-5 mark. They remain tied with Beloit for the top playoff spot in the Western Division.

With the score tied at 5-5 in the bottom of the ninth, Brett Eibner drew a leadoff walk against John Housey (1-1) and stole second. Cheslor Cuthbert was walked intentionally, and Jake Kuebler bunted the runners along.

After Orlando Calixte was walked intentionally to load the bases, Beltre, who also had a second-inning sacrifice fly, singled to center on a 3-2 pitch. It was the Cougars' sixth walk-off win.

Starter Leondy Perez tossed his team-best 12th quality start but was left with a no-decision after the Loons rallied for 4 runs in the eighth against Mitch Hodge and Chas Byrne.

Outlaws 7, Fielders 5:

The Chico Outlaws sent the Lake County Fielders to their fifth straight loss Sunday. Relief pitching and mental errors again were the problem, as relievers gave up 3 late runs late to put the game out of reach.
