Janesville’s American Legion baseball squad opened its season Sunday by splitting a doubleheader with Union Grove.

Janesville, which traveled with just 11 players due to Parker High’s run to the state baseball tournament, won the first game 5-2 after breaking a 2-2 tie in the top of the seventh inning with three runs.

In the second game, Janesville managed just four hits in an 8-1 loss.

Head coach Bob Schenk said one of team’s priorities was getting some of the pitchers back on the mound and throwing after having not played since the end of the spring high school season.

A handful of players who took the field Sunday for Janesville came up from the U-17 squad to help fill the shorthanded roster, and Schenk said they played well given the opportunity.

Janesville next plays at 7 p.m. Wednesday against Waterford at Janesville’s Riverside Park.
