BELOIT


Janesville Craig High settled for a split in a Big Eight Conference doubleheader with Beloit Memorial on Saturday.


The Cougars won the opener 10-6 in eight innings, but lost the nightcap 5-0. Craig is 3-7 in the Big Eight.


Craig was scheduled to host the twinbill at 11 a.m. at Riverside Park. Rain forced the teams to flee to Beloit’s baseball complex on Prairie Road for a 3 p.m. start.


Dylan Grall’s two-out bases-loaded double scored three runs to highlight Craig’s four-run eighth inning for the victory. Craig reliever Brett Fredricks held to Beloit to a single in its last at-bat to seal the victory.


Beloit’s Max Mauel ripped a two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh to send the game into overtime.


In Game 2, Mauel blanked the Cougars on five hits. He notched 14 strikeouts and walked none.


“Max Mauel was as strong on the hill as we’ve seen,” Craig coach Victor Herbst said. “He had us on our heels all day long.’’
