— Janesville’s American Legion baseball team ran its winning streak to three here Thursday night.

Andy Kersten threw four shutout innings to lead Janesville to a 14-5 win over Racine in a Southern Wisconsin Region 7 league game at Riverside Park.


Janesville (11-5, 6-1) broke the game open with six runs in the third and five more in the fourth. Taran Kobs and Matt Fiedler led Janesville’s 11-hit outburst with three hits each.


“Everybody in our lineup played and contributed,” Janesville coach Bob Schenck said. “Andy was in control, and I could’ve left him in, but I need a couple innings from him Saturday.


“That’s three straight games where we’ve had 10 or more hits, so that’s a good sign.”


Kersten, who will pitch for Carroll University next season, allowed one hit and struck out five in four innings.


Janesville plays twice Saturday at Burlington, facing Burlington a noon and Genoa City at 2:30 p.m.
