— Janesville’s American Legion baseball team will have to wait one more day to open up the AAA State Tournament.

Wednesday’s night’s opening game of the double-elimination tournament against Beloit was postponed due to severe weather. The two teams are scheduled to play at 9 a.m. today at Pohlman Field.

Andy Kersten is scheduled to pitch for Janesville against Beloit’s Aaron Roth.

If Janesville wins this morning, it will play at 8 p.m. today against Chippewa Falls. A loss sends Janesville into a loser’s bracket game against Plover (33-6) at 2:30 p.m.

In games played Wednesday, La Crosse defeated Green Bay, 8-0; Chippewa Falls beat Plover, 7-6; Appleton rallied to defeat De Pere, 5-3.
