Kevin Valerio went 3-for-5 with two RBI as the surging Manitowoc Bandits baseball team rolled past the Oshkosh Giants 11-6 at Municipal Field on Wednesday.

The  Bandits scored early and often, plating two runs in each of the first  two innings before exploding for six runs in the third inning.

Stewart  Larsen and Tommy Kawamura each contributed three hits on the evening  while Mike Hall, Sam Spurney, Brock Wetenkamp and Brandon Chinn each  recorded two hits.

Nate Shea picked up the win with six innings  pitched, five strikeouts and only one walk for the winners. He was  relieved by twin brother Matt Shea, who pitched one inning and then  Kawamura, who finished the game by pitching the ninth.

The Bandits  are now 26-6 overall on the season, 13-4 in the Wisconsin State League  and 13-2 in the Northeastern Wisconsin Baseball League. The Bandits sit  atop the standings in both leagues with crucial games coming as they  travel to Sheboygan tonight before hosting the Eau Claire Cavaliers for a  four-game series on Saturday and Sunday at Municipal Field.

On Saturday night at 5, the Bandits are hosting the 13th annual Christmas in July doubleheader.

Fans will receive the opportunity to win gift wrapped prizes throughout the game.

The Waters Edge Brass Band will begin playing before the game at 4:15pm.
