Kenosha Kings 6, Neosho Rockets 5

The late game Saturday night at the Wisconsin Amateur Baseball Classic was a good news, bad news proposition for the Kenosha Kings.

On the good side was a 6-5 win over previously unbeaten Neosho, but the bad news was, even in victory, the Kings were ousted from the tournament based on run differential.

The 24-team, six-pool tournament that drew teams from Illinois, Michigan and Wisconsin concluded Sunday in West Bend with the championship round. Kenosha finished the weekend at 2-1 and is 15-14 overall.

Kenosha also beat Brookfield and lost to West Allis.

Jason Bunton picked up the win over Neosho, as he worked a complete game and allowed four hits, five runs and struck out 13. Bunton (5-1) had a no-hitter into the sixth inning and a shutout into the seventh.
