Local Sports Roundup -- 6/9/10
The season and home opener for the Galesburg American Legion Post 285 baseball team was a success.

Galesburg, with four Carl Sandburg College players on the roster and several from the Galesburg High School baseball team that made a deep postseason run, swept a doubleheader against East Moline Wednesday at Sundberg Field.

Galesburg cruised to a 12-2 victory in the first game. The bats stayed hot in the finale as Post 285 rolled to a 17-7 win.

The team hits the road Thursday for a single game at 5 p-m against Moline, visits Canton Friday for a 5:30 p-m game and returns home for a game against Galesburg Prep Saturday at 6 p-m followed by a Sunday doubleheader against Ottawa that steps off at 1 p-m.
