We’ll switch things up with a game that had plenty of hits and runs by the good guys tonight as the Kane County Cougars took on the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers yet again.

Kane County was able to put up a huge four spot during the bottom of the fourth inning after the game was tied at one a piece through three. Danny Lockhart would begin the scoring on a single to left field which made it 2-1. Jacob Hannemann would take the first pitch of the two out at-bat to right field to make it 4-1.

Hannemann finished the game 5-3 with three hits and four RBI’s, meanwhile catcher Will Remillard went 3-4 with three RBI’s of his own.
