The Flyers scored single runs in the sixth and seventh innings to improve to 17-2 overall and 6-0 in the NBC. Genoa is 6-1 in the NBC.
Brad Ackerman scored the winning run with one out on Aaron Witt's infield single into the hole between first and second.
Ackerman reached on a walk, took second on Joel Densic's sacrifice bunt and moved to third on a wild pitch.
"It was a well-played game," Lake coach Greg Wilker said. "Both teams made some outstanding defensive plays. We had a great crowd and the atmosphere was a lot of fun."
Jayce Vancena pitched a two-hitter for Lake, striking out eight and walking one. One of Genoa's hits was an infield single.
Genoa's Luke Rightnowar allowed just five hits.
"Both pitchers threw well," Wilker said. "(Vancena) had a real good curveball that kept them off balance. He wasn't dominant, but he was very good."
After Genoa opened the scoring in the fourth, Lake tied the game in the sixth when Cody Witt reached on an infield error, advanced to third on two infield outs, and scored on Vancena's single to right-center field.
