KENOSHA—Not much went right Friday night for Janesville’s American Legion baseball team.

Post 205 fell behind early, committed five errors and could not recover in a 14-4 loss to Beloit in a District 7 AAA tournament game. The game was called after seven innings due to the 10-run rule.

Janesville (21-13-1) plays Kenosha in an elimination game at 1 p.m. today. Beloit is the only unbeaten team left in the double-elimination tournament.

Beloit opened up a 5-1 lead in the third and never looked back.

“We didn’t make good pitches, played poor defensively and just picked a bad time to not play well,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck said. “This is one we need to forget about quickly.

“We just have to come back tomorrow and take it one game at a time. It’s do-or-die now for us. One more loss and the season is over.”

Will Theisen drove in two of Janesville’s four runs, while Cullen Osmond scored twice for Post 205.
