WATERFORD--Hunter Van Zandt threw 6 1/3 innings of one-hit baseball and Janesville’s Post 205 American Legion team held on late for a 7-6 victory over Genoa City on Sunday.

Genoa City scored four runs in the seventh inning and had the bases loaded with two outs, but Darrin Brewster was able to save the victory.

Janesville (18-9-1) went 3-2 on the weekend to finish in third place in the Oconomowoc Tournament.

“Three out of five games we had double-digit hits,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck said. “We played well all five games. The two games we lost, we could’ve won both of them against good teams. Hopefully we’re peaking at the right time.”

Post 205 built up a 7-1 lead through six innings. Cullen Osmond was 2-for-3 with a run, an RBI and a pair of stolen bases, Wyatt Olson was 2-for-4 with a run, an RBI and a steal, and Conner Osmond was 3-for-3 with a run scored and one driven in.

Van Zandt allowed three runs in his 6 1/3 innings, but just one was earned. He struck out six.

“The game was going great and he didn’t run out of gas, but we had him on a pitch count and he hit it,” Schenck said. “We made three errors in the seventh, which didn’t help our pitcher.”

Post 205 is back in action Tuesday at Waterford.
