— Janesville’s American Legion baseball team broke out of a scoring slump in a big way Thursday night.

Sparked by a 14-run inning, Janesville rolled to a 16-6 Lakes Area Region 7 League win over East Troy at Riverside Park.


Andy Kersten, Austin Geller and Nolan Stearns had two hits each in the 14-run fourth inning as Janesville improved to 11-7 overall and 8-3 in the league.


“We needed to get the bats going, and we did,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck said. “But we also faced pretty good pitching the last two games.


“Everybody contributed tonight, and we go into a little break on a two-game winning streak.”


Janesville returns to action on Tuesday when it hosts the Kenosha Merchants.
