Beloit Day One
In baseball, it’s important to take advantage of the opportunities when they are presented to you. The Burlington Bees scored three unearned runs in the eighth inning last night because of two fielding errors by the Quad Cities River Bandits en route to a 5-2 win. LF Jose Rivero had two RBIs, including an RBI sacrifice fly in the eighth inning. He has recorded three RBIs over the last two games since being activated from the Disabled List.
RHP Zack Thornton pitched three innings of relief to pick up the win. It is the eighth time in 2011 that he has pitched three or more innings in a single outing. OF Jose Crisotomo continued his hot hitting, going 1-4 with an RBI single in the second inning. He has recorded 10 RBIs over the last four games.
