PLOVER


Janesville’s American Legion baseball team was hammered twice to open the Plover Tournament here Friday.


Janesville lost 12-5 to Green Bay Southwest and 17-4 to Eagan, Minn., in five innings.


Green Bay Southwest, No. 2 in the state Class AAA Legion ratings, rallied for eight runs in the second inning to put the game away.


Despite the lopsided loss, Janesville had 13 hits to Southwest’s eight.


“It was the same, old story,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck said. “We outhit them, but we gave them eight walks and three hit batters.”


Tom Yaucher hit a solo home run in the sixth inning for Janesville. Jake Welch went 3-for-4 with a pair of RBIs.


Eagan, Minn., ripped Janesville pitching for 18 hits.


“They are ranked No. 1 (in Minnesota), and they showed it,” Schenck said. “They are the best team we’ve faced this year, by far.’’


Janesville (15-13-1) plays Manitowoc at 10 a.m. today and Sun Prairie at 5 p.m. Janesville must win both games to advance to Sunday’s championship round.
