— A combination of timely hitting and effective pitching helped Janesville Craig rally for a 3-2 nonconference baseball victory over Lake Geneva Badger on Monday.

Mitch Phillips’ two-out single to left-center field drove in the winning run for Craig (2-2).


The Cougars trailed 2-0 until Christian DeCremer led off the sixth inning with a solo home run. Back-to-back doubles by Tom Yaucher and Charlie Meyer brought in the tying run.


Tyler Bloom came in to pitch for the Cougars in the sixth inning in relief of starter Austin Geller. After holding Badger scoreless in the sixth, Bloom allowed a leadoff single in the seventh and then strung together three straight strikeouts.


In the bottom of the seventh, Craig’s Mitch Perkins drew a leadoff walk, but was forced out when Bloom hit into a fielder’s choice. Tyler Splan entered as a courtesy runner for Bloom.


After Jamison Henning struck out for the second out, DeCremer was intentionally walked, setting the stage for Phillips.


“Our pitching was outstanding today, and our bats are slowly coming alive,” said Craig coach Vic Herbst.


Craig returns to action at 5 p.m. today, when the Cougars will host Madison La Follette.
