According to Peoria Chiefs teammate John Santor, outfielder Terry Evans has a cannon for an arm.

Santor's assertion came true as Evans thre out Adam Heether at the plate in the bottom of the 11th inning to end the game 3-2 in favor of the Chiefs.

"I had all the confidence in the world he would throw him out as long as he fielded it cleanly." Santor said.

The loss put Beloit at 3-4 in the Midwest League while Peoria improves to 3-4.

Justin Garza earned his first victory for the Chiefs, pitching three scoreless innings while Jason Burch picked up his second save of the season.

Dan Grybash recieved the loss for the Snappers.

Evans said the throw was his first clutch defensive play in his pro career and compares to a game winning home run he had in the bottom of the ninth at home last year.

Beloit starter Brian Montalbo's pitched six solid inning, allowing one earned run and four his, but earned only a no decison to show for it.

"He located his pitches and he working in and out real well." Evans said of Montalbo's pitching performance. " He mixed things up real well to keep us off balance which kept us from hitting the ball hard."

Montalbo said he had to locate his pitched well because he only had one good pitch, his fastball. His changeup did come in handy at times but the real key to his performance was keeping his pitches down in the strike zone.

Montalbo also got himself out of a jame in the fifth inning when the bases were loaded. He coaxed Mike McCoy of Peoria into hitting a grounder to first to end the threat.

Despite the loss, Montalbo was optimistic about the season ahead.

"We are going to have a good team this year. We are battling and lost some close games here and there." Montalbo said. "I think if we just execute more and get runners in scoring position we will be fine."
The Snappers started the game off scoring two runs int he first inning with an RBI single by catcher Lou Palmisano to score Robby Deevers. Drew Anderson later scored on a wild pitch thrown by Peoria's Kyle McClellan.

Manager Don Money said Deever played an impressive game, going 2 for 5.

Palmisano was hit by two pitches from McClellan, making it four times that he has been hit by Peori'a pitching.

He said there were no retaliatory possibilities because three of the four pitches were from bad breaking ball and he stands very close tot he plate.

The Snappers were able to hold the lead until the seventh inning when Milko Jaramillo doubled to center field to score Jutt Hileman.

Ty Taubenheim wo relieved Montalbo in the seventh inning allowed only one earned run in three innings pitched while striking out three. Grybash went the final two innings and allowed three hits and one run.

The Snappers start a four game series in Fort Wayne today. Beloit first baseman Manuel Ramirez was back in the lineup after recovering from a sprained ankle, went 2 for 5. Terry Trofholz also went 2 for 5.
