TinCaps lose to Beloit on eighth-inning HR

Eric Yardley allowed a go-ahead, two-run home run in the eighth inning as the TinCaps lost 6-1 to Beloit on Wednesday in the opener of a three-game series at Parkview Field.

Snappers cleanup batter Tyler Marincov crushed a 2-2 pitch onto the left field concourse with a runner on third to wipe out a 1-0 Fort Wayne lead.

The Snappers (40-61, 10-21 second half) got some breathing room in the ninth on Ryan Mathews' two-run shot off Jorge Guzman. They added two more insurance runs later in the inning.

The TinCaps (41-59, 11-20) had nine hits but went 0 for 6 with runners in scoring position. Jake Bauers' RBI groundout in the fourth seemed as if it would hold up, but Yardley (1-3), who had worked a scoreless seventh, couldn't quite pass the baton to closer Ryan Butler.

It cost Yimmi Brasoban a victory. He worked a season-high six innings, allowing no runs and three hits with six strikeouts.

Beloit got five innings of one-run ball from Matt Stalcup, and Joseph Michaud (2-0) followed with four scoreless frames.
