|Galesburg Post 285 Wins by Forfeit; Oneida Legion Beats Canton
Galesburg Post 285 earned a win Friday at the Wilmette Invite without having to throw a pitch or take a swing.
Galesburg won by forfeit because not enough players could suit up for Lake in the Hills prior to the scheduled game between the two squads. The win moves Galesburg's record to 7-0.
Post 285 will play Wilmette and Deerfield on Saturday. The tournament wraps up Sunday.
The Oneida American Legion Post 727 baseball team added a couple of wins on Friday.
Oneida swept a doubleheader from Canton, winning the opener 10-0 in six innings and the second game 10-3.
The wins improve Post 727's record to 8-2 on the season.
