The Kane County Cougars fell victim to a walk-off home run for the second consecutive day as the Beloit Snappers completed a three-game sweep over the Cougars with a 5-4 victory Sunday in 12 innings.

Trailing 3-1 in the bottom of the ninth at home, the Snappers (30-40) scored twice in a wild inning that included a dropped fly ball to right, a run-scoring double by BJ Boyd, and a pair of bunts that tied the score at 3-3.

Neither team scored until the top of the 12th inning when Jacob Rogers hit a solo home run over the left field wall to give Kane County a 4-3 lead.

Zak Hermans, the fifth pitcher for the Cougars (45-25), came on in the bottom of the 12th and gave up a single to Jaycob Brugman before Tyler Marincov lifted a 1-2 pitch deep to left for the second straight walk-off home run against the Cougars.

All of the Cougars' runs came off the long ball as Yasiel Balaguert connected on a two-run blast in the fourth inning and Jordan Hankins went deep in the sixth. Powell had a solo shot for the Snappers in the third frame.

Blake McMullen (1-2) picked up the win, and Hermans (2-1) suffered the loss.
