Kenosha rallies for legion win
Janesville built a 6-1 lead in the fifth but saw Kenosha score three times in the fifth and add six more in the sixth en route to a 10-8 win.
Janesville (3-1) had nine hits but could not overcome seven walks by four Janesville pitchers.
"We had a little trouble throwing strikes tonight and that hurt us," Janesville coach Bob Schenck said. "Up to the fifth inning, we played pretty well. After that, things kind of caved in on us.
"But it's one loss. We weren't going to go undefeated, anyway. Hopefully, we'll bounce back in the tournament this weekend."
Trent Kobs had three of Janesville's nine hits, while Tyler Teubert drove in two runs.
Janesville will host Lodi at 7:15 p.m. today at Riverside Park as part of the three-day Five-Star Tournament.
