— Janesville Craig High School did a little venting en route to a doubleheader split with visiting Beloit Memorial Saturday in Big Eight Conference baseball.

The Cougars lost the opener, 10-6, but broke loose for a 13-1 victory in five innings in the nightcap to break a three-game losing streak. Craig is 4-7 in the Big Eight and 7-8 overall. Beloit is 4-6 in the league.


The Cougars pounded the Purple Knights with nine runs in the fifth inning of Game 2. Craig capitalized on three hit batters, two walks and four hits, including Cameron Wright’s two-run double.


“That was a nice inning,” said Craig coach Victor


Herbst, whose Cougars were coming off a 17-2 loss to Verona. “It was a good inning. We had good at-bats, and it should help get us back on track.”


Brandon Hughes went the distance for Craig, allowing one run on three hits for the victory.


In the opener, three of four Craig pitchers issued 12 walks. Beloit rolled to a 9-3 lead before Craig scored three runs in the fifth to cut the deficit to 9-6.


“It’s the first time our pitching let us down this year,” Herbst said. ”They kept putting guys on and then (Beloit) got some timely hits.’’
