— Janesville’s American Legion baseball team and Hononegah played to a 6-6 tie in a non-league game that was called because of darkness here Wednesday.

A heavy rainstorm delayed the 6:30 p.m. start for more than 30 minutes. There are no lights at the Hononegah field.


“We were lucky to get in seven innings,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck said. “It


really poured here.’’


Janesville led 6-4, but Hononegah tied it in the bottom of the seventh on a two-out, two-run single. A balk moved both Hononegah runners into scoring position.


Tyler Teubert stroked a solo homer in the sixth to pull Janesville within 4-3. Janesville scored three runs in the seventh, with Zach Whalen delivering a two-run double for the key hit.


Janesville (12-7-1) opens the Tri-State Tournament at Oconomowoc on Friday with two games. Janesville plays Fond du Lac at 2:30 p.m. and Oconomowoc at 5:45 p.m.


Janesville plays two games Saturday and concludes the tournament with a single game Sunday.
