On Monday the Houston Astros Class-A Full Season affiliate, the Quad Cities River Bandits, defeated the Beloit Snappers 8-0, to win their 12th straight game and improve to 25-6.
Both teams remained scoreless until the bottom of the third when Quad Cities River added three more runs. McMullen opened the inning with a double to center field, and scored on a throwing error, after a sacrifice bunt by Jason Martin. After a walk to Thomas Lindauer, James Ritchie hit a one out single to score both Martin and Lindauer to extend the lead to 4-0.
