— The Janesville American Legion played clean baseball and came away with a 2-1 victory over Beloit in Region 7 play Wednesday at Riverside Park.

The victory broke a two-game losing streak. In those two losses Janesville had a combined 11 errors and allowed 14 stolen bases.


Janesville had none of that against Beloit. The Legion did not commit an error, and Beloit did not steal a base.


Taran Kobs executed a perfect suicide squeeze to score Tyler Teubert with the winning run in the bottom of the seventh.


“Games like this are why you coach and play Legion baseball,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck said. “We executed well.’’


Janesville starter Mike Davis allowed one run on four hits in going the distance for the victory. Davis notched six strikeouts and walked a pair.


“Davis had great off-speed stuff and kept them guessing all the time,” Schenck said. “We made some nice defensive plays.’’
