Chiefs end scoreless streak at 38 1/3 innings

The Peoria Chiefs finally ended their franchise-worst scoreless streak today, and they did it in a big way.

They didn’t score until the 7th inning — extending their scoreless streak to 38 1/3 innings — but they plated eight runs in that frame. That was enough to beat the Beloit Snappers 8-4.

Prior to today’s game, the Chiefs last scored in the 4th inning of Friday’s game against the Cedar Rapids Kernels. They plated seven runs in that frame.

Interestingly, Michael Schulze was the last Chiefs player to drive in a run before the scoreless streak began, and he was the one who ended the streak with an RBI single today. In fact, he had two RBI singles in the 7th inning today; his second one drove in the last run of the frame.

Chiefs CF C.J. McElroy went 3-for-5 with a double and a run batted in. Chiefs SS Juan Herrera went 0-for-4 but swiped a pair of bags after reaching base three times, on two fielder’s choice plays and an error.
