Rake down Merchants in American Legion regional playoff game

KENOSHA — The Kenosha Rake used a four-run sixth inning to take the lead, then held on for a 5-2, nine-inning victory over the Kenosha Legion Post 21 Merchants in a Wisconsin American Legion Region 7 first-round playoff game Wednesday at Bradford High School’s Wavro Field.

The Rake, who won a coin flip to be the “home” team, took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning when Kyle Washburn singled and scored on a double steal of home, with Pete Del Fava swiping second on the play.

“The administration’s willful violation of the law has been made clear by the courts,”said Twila Brase of the Citizens’ Council for Health Freedom in a statement applauding a decision by the U.S. District Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C. The court said only states that set up their own exchanges could offer federal subsidies. If the ruling holds up, it is a serious blow to Obamacare.
