June 18, 2009
— Janesville’s American Legion baseball team began its Lakes Area Region 7 League title defense in emphatic fashion here Wednesday night.

Sparked by a pair of six-run innings, Janesville rolled to a 12-1 win over Genoa City in five innings in a season opner at Riverside Park.


Janesville took advantage of four Genoa City errors to wipe out a 1-0 deficit in a six-run second inning. Zach Bayeuther’s RBI double was one of four hits in the inning.


Dylan Grall had a double, and Brett Fredricks, Zach Whalen, Kaleb Eichmann and Jake Kobs contributed singles to a six-run fourth that put the game out of reach.


Janesville returns to action at 7 tonight with home game against Franklin.
