— Janesville’s American Legion baseball team survived eight errors Wednesday night to post an 11-9 victory over Hononegah.

“We did not play very well in the field,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck said. “But we made up for it with some clutch hits.’’


Andy Kersten had a bases-loaded double to drive in three runs in Janesville’s six-run sixth inning. Charlie Meyer added a two-run single to give Janesville an 11-8 lead.


Hononegah scored six runs in the fifth inning to erase Janesville’s 5-2 lead.


Janesville reliever Trent Kobs held Hononegah scoreless through the final two innings. Kobs allowed two hits, walked four and notched three strikeouts.


“We did not make the plays behind the pitchers,” Schenck said. “It made for a long night.’’


Janesville hosts Racine at 7 tonight.
