— A four-run rally by Beloit left the visiting Janesville American Legion baseball team with a 5-4 loss Wednesday night at Pohlman Field.

Janesville led 4-1, but Beloit scored four runs on three hits and an error in the sixth inning to get the victory.


“We played well, but we had a chance to make a couple plays, and we didn’t,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck said. “Beloit is too good a team not to take advantage (of mistakes).’’


Janesville starter Kyle Johnson allowed four runs—three earned—on four hits and notching seven strikeouts in five innings. Reliever Andy Kersten took the loss, allowing one run on two hits.


“Kyle pitched five solid innings,” Schenck said. “He just ran out of gas.”


Janesville (12-7) opens the Oconomowoc Tri-State Classic by playing Oconomowoc at 9 a.m. Friday and Monona Grove at 11:45 a.m.
