— Janesville Parker High School pounded host Oconomowoc with 12 hits and survived a dicey seventh inning Friday to post a 10-8 nonconference baseball victory.

“We swung the bats real good,” said coach Brian Martin as Parker went over .500 for the season at 11-10 overall.


The Vikings scored five runs on six hits in the second inning to take a 5-2 lead. Jeff Henke and Taran Kobs contributed RBI singles and Connor Long posted an RBI double.


Parker jumped to an 8-2 lead in the fifth, scoring three runs on three hits for an 8-2 lead. Kyle Johnson hit a leadoff double was bunted to third and scored on squeeze bunt. Henke added an RBI double.


Henke went 3-for-4 with three RBIs and starting Parker pitcher Trent Kobs went 2-for-2 with a pair of RBIs.


The Vikings lead 10-3 heading into the bottom of the seventh. Oconomowoc scored five runs on four hits, two errors and walk.


“We were perfect in the field until the seventh,” Martin said. “Then things got interesting.’’


Trent Kobs allowed six runs—five earned—on nine hits and four walks through 6 1/3 innings. Johnson allowed two runs on two hits in 2/3 of an inning in relief of Kobs.


Parker hosts Oconomowoc at 5 p.m. Monday at Riverside Park.
