Janesville 13U team headed to regionals
The Janesville 13U Babe Ruth team is headed to Kentucky to play in the regional.
Janesville earned the state title Tuesday with a 16-1 victory over Eau Claire in a game shortened to five innings because of the mercy rule.
Janesville scored nine runs in the first to take command.
“We got off to a great start and never looked back,” coach Jeff Endicott said.
Jordan Bailey pitched all five innings and limited Eau Claire to two hits. Bailey struck out eight and allowed the only run in the first inning.
Ross March led the offense with three hits.
Janesville advances to the Ohio Valley Regional in Elizabethtown, Kentucky. Play begins Thursday, July 24.
