|Galesburg Post 285 Lights Up Monmouth Legion Squad
|Galesburg Post 285 had it all clicking in a doubleheader sweep of Monmouth's legion team.
Galesburg, coming off a split of four games in the Wilmette Invite last weekend in which three of the contests were decided by one run - the other was a 5-0 forfeit victory - made quick work of Monmouth Tuesday at Sundberg Field.
Post 285 won the first game 16-4. Nick Leary homered for the hosts and rookie Carson Cheesman earned the win on the mound, improving to 2-0 on the season.
Galesburg kept on hitting in the finale, beating Monmouth 18-4. Leary added another home run and Caleb Weaver also went deep. Another rookie toed the rubber for Post 285, Chance Sugden, and he picked up his first win.
Galesburg is now 10-2 ahead of Wednesday's doubleheader at home against Farmington's legion squad starting at 5:30.
