Beloit righty MD Johnson needed just one run of support from his offense to collect his first win of the season, as the Sky Carp beat Great Lakes 1-0 on Wednesday night at Dow Diamond.

In the best outing of the season by a Beloit starter, Johnson allowed just two hits while striking out six and walking none in seven innings.

After squandering a bases-loaded, no out opportunity in the top of the first, Beloit baserunners were hard to come by. The Sky Carp tallied just one hit – a third inning single from Bennett Hostetler.

The lone run of the ballgame came in the top of the 7th, thanks to crafty baserunning from JD Orr. After drawing a one-out walk, Orr stole second. On the next pitch, Orr dashed for third, drawing a throw into left field by the catcher Ryan January, which allowed Orr to score easily.

The Sky Carp bullpen backed up Johnson’s effort, as Justin Evans tossed a scoreless 8th and Sean Reynolds notched his second save of the season with a 1-2-3 9th inning.

The victory is Beloit’s fourth in a row – their longest win streak of the season.

They’ll look to stay hot tomorrow with a doubleheader starting at 5:05 ET. The second game will start approximately 30 minutes after the completion of the first 7-inning contest. Fans can listen to all the action on the Big Radio app.
