— The wind was blowing out at McQuade Field and baseballs were sailing everywhere as the Janesville American Legion split a doubleheader with visiting Oshkosh on Sunday afternoon.

Janesville won the opener, 13-10, and lost the nightcap 10-9. Both games were decided in the seventh inning.


The teams combined to hit seven home runs and 15 other extra-base hits.


“It was quite entertaining baseball,” Legion coach Ron Pohlman said, adding his scorebook “is a mess.’’


Janesville’s Caleb Eichman belted a walkoff three-run homer for the victory in Game 1. Janesville couldn’t produce the same heroics in Game 2, leaving the bases loaded to suffer its third the one-run loss of the season.


The Legion began both games trailing 4-1 after the first inning.


Janesville’s Matt Beyer led the day’s hit parade producing five in hits in seven at-bats, including three home runs and six RBIs.


Reliever B.J. Scharenbroch had the distinction of gaining the victory in Game 1, and absorbing the loss in Game 2.


The Legion (7-4) will host East Troy at 7 tonight at Riverside Park.
