— Janesville’s American Legion team is on a roll.

Thanks to a seven-run second inning, Janesville ran its winning streak to four with an 8-3 win over Hononegah (Ill.) on Wednesday night at Riverside Park.


Janesville (6-5) started the season 0-3, but has now won six of its last eight games.


“We’ve still got some things to shore up, especially with the number of walks our pitchers are allowing, but we’re hitting the ball up and down the lineup,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck. “We had five doubles and one triple in the second inning tonight. That’s pretty impressive.


“We just have to get our pitchers to throw more strikes, and get better fundamentally on defense. We’ve got to cut down on our errors.”


Janesville jumped on Hononegah with seven in the bottom of the second. Tyler Teubert tripled in the inning, while Tom Yaucher, Zach Whalen, Tanner Moe, Kyle Johnson and Taran Kobs doubled.


Teubert, who finished 2-for-4 with two runs scored and two runs batted in, picked up the win in relief of Matt Fiedler.


Janesville pitchers walked 11 batters in the game.


“That has got to stop,” Schenck said of walks. “We’ve got to quit thinking we’re going to strike everybody out, and instead, start working ahead of the hitters.


“Tyler didn’t allow a hit in four innings, but walked eight. When he throws strikes, he’s very effective.”


Janesville swept a Lakes Area Region 7 doubleheader from Richmond (Ill.) on Tuesday night. The second game finished after deadline.


Janesville will play at Waterford tonight in a league doubleheader.
