— Starter Mike Davis navigated stormy seas en route to visiting Janesville Craig’s decisive 15-6 victory over Madison West in Big Eight Conference high school baseball Tuesday.

Davis smacked a solo home run in the second inning to give Craig a 4-2 lead, but on the mound the Regents touched Davis for six runs in the first three innings for a 6-5 lead.


Craig rallied for three runs in the fourth to take the lead for good, 8-6. Davis followed the rally by blanking the Regents the rest of the way, facing 13 Regents in going the distance for the victory.


The win lifted Craig to 5-3 in the Big Eight and 7-4 overall.


“Davis kind of struggled in the first three (innings),” Craig coach Vic Herbst said. “But in the last four, he faced one batter over the minimum.’’


The Cougars raked five pitchers for 15 hits.


Craig’s Mitch Phillips and Tom Yaucher each had three hits and combined to drive in six runs.


Craig hosts Verona at 5 p.m. Thursday at Riverside Park.
