The Janesville East Point Sportz Pub Aces lost to visiting Hustisford 5-0 in Rock River League baseball action Saturday afternoon at Riverside Park.
“We hit the ball well, but we hit it right at them,” Aces coach David Gackstatter said. “And they were able to get hits when they had guys in scoring position.”
Hustisford, the defending Rock River League grand champion, broke the game open with a four-run eighth that featured a pair of two-run doubles.
The Aces had eight hits. Kevin Raisbeck hit a triple, which was his third in two games. Austin Geller went 3-for-4 and J.C. Hughes was 2-for-3.
Janesville (1-4) returns to Riverside Park today to play Lebanon in a 1:30 p.m. game.
