— The Janesville American Legion baseball team opened the Kenosha Tournament with a pair of victories Friday.

The Legion downed Grays Lake (Ill.), 8-4, and blanked Wausau, 8-0, in five innings. Janesville is 10-5 overall.


Pitching carried Janesville in both victories. Colin Frey held Grays Lake to four runs—one earned—on four hits through seven innings. Andy Kersten blanked Wausau on two hits in the five-inning game halted by the tournament’s 8-run rule.


Coach Bob Schenck said defeating Wausau was a highlight for Janesville.


“We are the No. 4-ranked team in the state and Wausau was No. 6,” Schenck said. “It was a good test for us. We played a very good game against a good program.’’


Sam McCann went 3-for-3 with three RBIs against Grays Lake to lead Janesville’s 13-hit attack.


Janesville plays at 11 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. today.
