In the series finale against the Beloit Snappers, the Kane County Cougars were hoping to pull out another win. Instead, they had a game where they were never in the lead, which has not happened since the team pulled into first place after the mid-season break. The final score was a lop-sided 7-2 in favor of Beloit.
Leondy Perez was on the mound and he was hoping to get his 10th quality start in 11 times on the mound. Instead, he gave up a season-high seven runs on seven hits. He only pitched 4 ⅔ innings. This was his shortest time on the mound, without a rain delay being involved, since April.
Perez gave up a run to the Snappers right in the first inning. The Cougars offense managed to come back and tie up the game, but that was about as close as the team ever got to leading. Their offense only managed six hits and snapped their streak, at eight games, of consecutive games with a home run.
The Cougars are in the middle of a six-game home stand at Elfstrom Stadium. Their next game is Sunday night against the Quad Cities River Bandits. The game time is set for 6 p.m. Greg Billo is set to start on the mound.
