— Janesville’s American Legion baseball team lost twice Tuesday night in the Region 7 league playoffs at the Beloit Sports Complex.

Beloit defeated Janesville, 6-1, in the opener, and the Kenosha Merchants won 5-3 in eight innings.


Janesville hitters had a rough night, getting put down on strikes 26 times in the two games. Kenosha’s Ryan Furtney had 18 strikeouts, and Beloit’s Aaron Jones notched eight.


Janesville scored its lone run against Beloit in the first inning. Beloit scored all its runs in the fifth.


“We didn’t make the plays,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck said of the fifth-inning meltdown. “We had a shot to get out (of the inning) with one run, but we just didn’t make the plays, and it snowballed.’’


In Game 2, Furtney walked eight, and Janesville got to him for four hits.


“We had our chances,” Schenck said, “but we couldn’t put the ball in play when it mattered. Furtney just reared back and threw it past our guys.”


Kenosha took a 3-0 lead, but Janesville tied it with three runs in the third. Kenosha scored twice in the eighth for the winning margin.


Burlington defeated Kenosha, 2-1, and Beloit, 9-4, to win the championship.


Janesville (15-11-1) opens the Plover tournament against Eagan, Minn., at 3 p.m. Friday, followed by Green Bay Southwest at 5:30.
