— Tanner Moe and Tom Yaucher put on a hitting clinic Monday night for Janesville’s American Legion team.

Yaucher went 4-for-4 and scored twice, while Moe was 3-for-3 with three doubles and five RBIs to lead Janesville to a 12-0 five-inning win over Racine in a Lakes Area Region 7 league game.


Kyle Johnson pitched a complete-game five-hitter as Janesville improved to 3-5 overall and 1-1 in league play.


“We’ve got eight games in 10 days, so we needed a good outing from our pitcher tonight, and we got one from Kyle,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck said. “That will save on the arms for later in the week.


“Yaucher is hitting everything hard right now, and Moe is swinging a really hot bat, as well.”


Janesville broke the game open with four runs in the top of the first and three more in the second.


Johnson, who will be a senior at Janesville Parker, struck out six and walked two.


Janesville will host Richmond in a Lakes Area Region 7 doubleheader at 5 p.m. today at Riverside Park.
