Saturday turned out to be an almost ideal day for baseball in Galesburg, as the Streaks Early Spring Invitational got off without a hitch. And there weren't many for the Streaks at the tournament, as Jason Maulden was the winning pitcher, and Cal Morling was 3-for-4 in a 9-5 win over East Aurora. Peyton Isaacson went four innings pitching two-hit baseball as the Streaks went on to defeat Dunlap 7-2. Carson Cheesman had 3 hits and 3 RBI's for the Streaks in that win.
