The Kane County Cougars won a key game against the Beloit Snappers Wednesday night. With the win the Cougars now have a four-game lead for the top playoff spot in their division in the Midwest League with 32 games left in the season. The final score was 6-1.

The Cougars got the win thanks, in part, to a stellar start from Leondy Perez. He pitched a strong 6 ⅔ innings and got his 14th quality start, which is enough for the top spot among Cougars starters. It was the first time he has won consecutive starting efforts this season.

Perez gave up the one earned run and that was in the second inning. After that he settled down and the Cougars offense shut down the Snappers. Perez ended up giving up six hits and walked two. He also struck out seven batters.

The Cougars and Snappers are set to face off again on Thursday night. They are in the middle of a four-game series. Santiago Garrido is set to start on the mound for the Cougars.

The Kane County Cougars are a professional minor league baseball team. They play ball at the single-A level. They are a farm team for the Kansas City Royals.
