— Libertyville, Ill., brought out the heavy hitters in Thursday’s nonconference baseball game against Janesville Parker at Miller Park.

Sparked by seven extra-base hits, Libertyville handed Parker an 8-2 loss.


Parker (7-5) tied the game at 1-1 in the bottom of the first, but a five-run fourth inning broke the game open for Libertyville.


“They would do very well in our league,” Parker coach said of Libertyville. “They didn’t have any cheap hits. They hit one home run, and two other shots off the wall.


“It’s a great experience for the kids to come here and play, but we just ran into a better team today.”


Trent Kobs drove in one of Parker’s runs with a triple.


Parker plays a Big Eight Conference doubleheader at 11 a.m. Saturday at Bowman Field against East in Madison.
