Jason Dennis belted a three-run home run in each game as the Kenosha Kings swept a Wisconsin State League doubleheader from the Oshkosh Giants, 7-2 and 16-1, on Saturday at Simmons Field.

The Kings (5-2, 4-0 WSL) host the Addison Braves in another State League doubleheader starting at 5 p.m. today at Simmons Field.

In Saturday’s seven-inning first game, the Kings trailed 2-0 in the bottom of the fourth inning when Dennis homered to left center for a 3-2 lead.

Kings starter Randy Johnson (2-0) allowed only one earned run in his three-hit complete game. He walked none and struck out 10.

“We came out of the gates a little shaky on defense,” Kings manager Tim Pulizzano said. “Randy glided after the third.”

Billy Johnson went 2-for-3 with two runs scored.

In the five-inning second game, the Kings collected 16 hits in only four innings. They sent 17 batters to the plate in their 12-run third inning. Dennis hit his second three-run homer of the day in the big inning.

“That’s the biggest inning that I can ever remember,” Pulizzano said.

Tyler Eickmeyer, Kevin Padgett and Paul Pulera all went 3-for-4. Eickmeyer and Pulera also drove in two runs apiece as did JT Schneider (2-for-4) and Andrew Highland.

Travis Vanderwall (2-0) gave up four hits in four innings to pick up the win.

He walked none and fanned three. Logan Hartnell pitched a scoreless fifth.
