— Janesville Craig High School defeated visiting Beloit Memorial, 4-2, Wednesday to rise above .500 in the Big Eight Conference baseball race.

The victory lifted the Cougars to 7-6 in the league and 10-8 overall.


Craig erased a 2-1 deficit in the fifth inning, scoring three runs on two hits and a pair of Purple Knight errors for the winning margin. Austin Geller ripped a two-run single, and Jamison Henning added a run-scoring single.


Craig’s Cody Steed pitched hitless relief through the final two innings to earn the save. Starter Mike Davis allowed both Beloit runs on four hits through five innings to gain the victory.


Steed faced seven batters and notched six strikeouts. Beloit’s only runner reached on an error.


“Cody was overpowering,” Craig coach Vic Herbst said. “He just pounded the zone.’’


Craig is scheduled to play at Madison La Follette this afternoon.
