The Kenosha Kings baseball team suffered only its third loss of the season in a split doubleheader on Saturday at Koslo Park in Menasha.

The Kings lost to the Menasha Macs, 3-2, but bounced beat to beat the Two Rivers Polar Bears, 11-1 in five innings.

In the seven-inning first game, Menasha scored all three runs off Kenosha starter Randy Johnson in the first inning and held on.

Johnson allowed seven hits in five innings while striking out three.

Brandon Jeffery pitched two innings of scoreless relief.

“Menasha is a solid team and they came out swinging the bats,” Kings manager Tim Pulizzano said. “They were hitting Randy early, which you don’t see very often.”

Joe Balestreri had an RBI single in the second inning and Jason Dennis scored a run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth to make it 3-2, but the Kings (15-3) didn’t threaten in the final two innings.

In the second game, right-hander Anthony Olson (2-1) lost his no-hit bid in the fifth inning. The right-hander walked none and struck out three in his one-hitter.

Kenosha scored four runs in the first inning and three more in the second in building an early 7-0 lead.

JT Schneider went 3-for-4 with a double, triple, three runs scored and an RBI and Paul Pulera went 3-for-4 with two RBI to lead a 13-hit attack.

Kyle Frye and Balestreri chipped in two hits apiece and combined for three RBI.

The Kings next play the Genoa City Red Dogs in a Langsdorf League game 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Krisik Park. The Kings are 6-0 in the Langsdorf League.
