The Beloit Snappers made quick work of the Clinton Lumber Kings, earning a two-game sweep of the first-round of the Midwest League playoffs and punching their ticket to the Western Division finals.

After a see-saw Game One, the Beloit Snappers took much of the drama out of Game Two of the first-round of the Midwest League playoffs. They posted crooked numbers in the fourth and fifth innings to break open the game and cruised to a 6-2 win. That win earned the Snappers a two-game sweep over the Clinton Lumber Kings.

Oakland A’s 2013 fourth-round pick Dylan Covey got the start for the Snappers, and he shined. In six innings, he allowed just two runs (one earned) on three hits and no walks. He struck-out three and earned the win.

Sam Bragg, Chris Lamb and Tyler Vail each tossed a scoreless inning in relief of Covey to close out the win.

Chris Bostick – Game One’s offensive hero – got the scoring going with an RBI single in the first. John Wooten drove-in two and Brett Vertigan also had an RBI. Daniel Robertson and Matt Olson each walked twice, while Aaron Shipman reached twice with a single and a walk..

The Snappers will take on the Quad Cities River Bandits in the Western Division Finals. The best-of-three series will begin on Saturday in Quad Cities. Game Two and Game Three (if necessary) will be back in Beloit.
