Kane County’s winning streak ended at 10 games Monday when the Timber Rattlers beat the Cougars 5-4 in 11 innings at Fox Cities Stadium.

Alan Sharkey, who homered earlier in the game, scored the winning run to give Wisconsin its first walk-off victory of the season. Sthervin Matos also homered for the Timber Rattlers.

Matos and Tucker Neuhaus each had three hits and a run batted in for the Timber Rattlers. Chuck Taylor did the same for the Cougars.

Rehabbing Milwaukee Brewers leftfielder Khris Davis went 0-for-2 with a walk in what is expected to be his final game with the Timber Rattlers. He batted .100 (2-for-20) with three walks, two strikeouts and a sacrifice fly during his six-game rehab stint.
