BELOIT, Wis. - Chad Lewis hit a groundball off the second-base bag with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning to score the winning run in Beloit's 3-2 victory over the Cedar Rapids Kernels on Monday night at Pohlman Field.

It was the second walk-off hit of the series for Lewis, who also won Saturday's game.

Tim Atherton (2-2) took the loss in relief for Cedar Rapids (24-11), which ended a season-long 12-game road trip. The Kernels return home Tuesday night to entertain the Burlington Bees.

Starting pitcher Matt Tomshaw retired 11 hitters in a row at one point for the Kernels but allowed a two-run home run to Renato Nunez in the seventh to put Beloit on top, 2-1. Cedar Rapids tied the game in the eighth on an RBI single from Jorge Polanco.
