Reinheimer extended his season-high hit streak to nine. He has hit .405 (15-for-37) with five RBIs and eight runs scored during the streak. Four LumberKings had a multi-hit game, after combining for zero multi-hit games over the first three games of the series.
Sunday’s win came one day after Beloit blanked Clinton for the second time in 24 hours.
Dylan Covey silenced the LumberKings after the Snappers swept a doubleheader 1-0 and 5-2 on Friday.
Covey, a fourth-round pick by the Oakland Athletics in 2013, got all the run support he needed before he even threw a pitch. The Snappers sent eight batters to the plate against Clinton left-hander Eddie Campbell and scored twice in the top of the first inning.
Herschel Powell walked to lead off the frame, the first of five walks issued by Campbell. After getting Melvin Mercedes on a lineout to center, four straight batters reached. Tyler Marincov singled, Vollmuth loaded the bases after reaching on Joe DeCarlo’s ninth error of the season and Jaycob Brugman brought home Powell with a run-scoring single.
The next batter, Ryan Huck, then popped what appeared to be a routine out to shallow right field, but second baseman Martin Peguero overran the ball, allowing another run to score.
Covey got out of an early jam when he induced a double play in the first after Clinton loaded the bases with one out. He escaped in the third and fourth, as well, stranding two runners each time.
Brugman doubled Beloit’s lead in the third with a two-run home run, and the Snappers chased Campbell in the fourth after he issued his fourth and fifth walks. Rafael Pineda came on in relief and promptly gave up a two-run double to Brugman, who entered the game with eight RBIs and finished with a career-high five.
