KENOSHA — The Kenosha Kings pounded out 26 hits en route to sweeping a Wisconsin State League doubleheader from the Addison Braves on Saturday at Simmons Field.
The Kings won the first game 10-0 in six innings and 13-7.
“We’ve been slumping at the plate a little bit lately,” said Kings manager Tim Pulizzano, whose team improved to 16-5 in the State League (34-9 overall). “It was a good day for us.”
Randy Johnson (8-1) pitched a four-hitter in the opener with no walks and five strikeouts.
Kenosha collected six of its 12 hits in a seven-run third inning. The Kings brought the mercy rule into effect on a two-out, two-run single by Paul Pulera in the sixth.
Pulera (2-for-4) was one of four Kings with two hits. Tyler Eickmeyer went 2-for-4 with two RBI, JT Schenider went 2-for-3 with two doubles and Jason Dennis went 2-for-3 with a double. Billy Johnson also drove in two runs.
In the second game, John Hasser had a three-run double in the first inning and the Kings never looked back. Hasser finished 2-for-2 with four RBI.
Pulera continued his hot day by going 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI to lead a 14-hit attack. Dennis (2-for-3, double), Kyle Frye (2-for-4, double, RBI) and Billy Johnson (2-for-4, three RBI) also led the way.
Jon Olson (3-2) picked up the win after allowed three runs (two earned) on four hits in four innings. Dennis and Joe Ferro also pitched.
