Warriors look good with Snitker at helm

Reid Snitker reported for the first day of football practice at Washington High School last season and found out he wasn't going to be a receiver for the Warriors anymore.

Nope, he was going to become a full-time quarterback. And what's more, he was going to be the starting quarterback.

Right now. Today. This minute.

"It was pretty tough," Snitker says now, "but you have to adapt, I guess."

He adapted quite well, thank-you.

Kernels roll past Beloit, 10-3

BELOIT, Wis. - The Minnesota Twins keep making changes to the Cedar Rapids Kernels roster, but it doesn't seem to matter.

The Kernels keep winning.

Mitch Garver led a 14-hit attack Thursday night as the Kernels dumped Beloit, 10-3, in a Midwest League game before 1,034 fans at Pohlman Field.

The Kernels swept the three-game series from Beloit and remained one game behind Kane County in the Western Division standings for the second half of the season.

Cedar Rapids is 62-60 overall and 31-21 for the second half, despite a series of roster moves in the past few weeks.

Stewart, Hu shine for Kernels

BELOIT, Wis. - Kohl Stewart and Chih-Wei Hu combined on a six-hitter Wednesday night as the Cedar Rapids Kernels dumped Beloit, 6-1, in a Midwest League game before 1,036 fans at Pohlman Field.

Stewart, who came off the disabled list Wednesday, allowed one run on three hits in four innings. Hu, normally a starter, pitched five innings in relief and did not allow any runs on three hits.

Stewart struck out four batters and did not walk anyone. Hu (5-1, 2.54 ERA) struck out three Snappers with one walk.

J.D. Williams hit a solo home run for Cedar Rapids and Max Murphy belted a two-run shot.

Jonatan Hinojosa, Mitch Garver, Murphy and Williams had two hits apiece. Chad Christensen hit his seventh triple and drove in his 65th run. Garver collected his 70th RBI.

Woods says Hawkeyes are dream come true

Corbin Woods met with Iowa baseball coach Rick Heller three weeks ago to discuss the possibility of joining the Hawkeyes next year after he finished his junior college career.

As it turned out, there was no reason to wait.

Heller called last week and offered Woods a spot on the team right now and the Xavier High School graduate was delighted to accept.

"It's been a dream to go there," said Woods. "It's surreal to finally have the opportunity to go play at Iowa. I'm trying to take it all in right now."

Woods graduated from Xavier in 2013 and enrolled at Heartland (Ill.) Community College, where he hit .309 as a freshman this past season. He planned to play for Heartland again as a sophomore, but Heller's offer was too good to refuse.

The Hawkeyes needed another infielder and Woods fit the bill.
