— The Janesville American Legion baseball team’s struggles continued Tuesday night at Riverside Park.

Janesville was held to three hits en route to an 11-0 loss to visiting Burlington in Region 7 League play.


The loss dropped Janesville to 6-3 in the league and 9-7 overall.


Burlington starter Cody Peterson notched six strikeouts, allowing singles in the third, fourth and seventh innings to blank Janesville.


“Burlington’s pitcher threw 60 to 70 percent curves and a fastball that was just fast enough,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck said of Peterson, the Player of the Year in the Southern Lakes Conference for a Burlington High School team that won 25 games. “He is definitely the best pitcher we’ve seen this year.’’


Janesville starter Andy Kersten allowed seven runs—four earned—on seven hits through five innings in taking the loss. Kersten walked two and notched seven strikeouts.


Schenck said Kersten pitched well enough, but the Janesville defense made five errors.


“We didn’t help, allowing five extra runners to reach base,” Schenck said.
