— Janesville’s American Legion baseball team wrapped up the three-day Five-Star Tournament with a win here Sunday.

Tanner Moe drove in two runs, and Janesville rallied from a three-run deficit to beat Oconomowoc, 6-5, at Riverside Park.


Janesville (5-3 overall) finished 2-2 in the tournament, while Beloit took the title by winning all four of its games.


Janesville got even with a fifth-inning run and took the lead for good in the sixth on an Oconomowoc throwing error.


“After losing a couple of tough games Saturday, it was nice to bounce back with a win today,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck said. “It was a good team win. We played well defensively, got some timely hits and found a way.


“Right now, we’re struggling with walking batters. We walked nine today, and that’s too many. But Connor (Long) came in and did a nice job in getting the win.”


Trent Kobs scored twice for Janesville, while Charlie Meyer had an RBI triple.


In other Five-Star games Sunday, Lodi beat Milton, 2-1, and Beloit cruised past Oconomowoc, 12-2.


Janesville hosts Genoa City on Tuesday night.
