|For the second straight game, the Galesburg Legion baseball team rallied from a 5-run deficit in the late innings Thursday to advance at the District 15 tournament in Oneida.
Post 285 trailed Quincy 5-0 through 6 innings, before pulling out a 6-5, 10-inning victory that moved them into Saturday's championship game. Galesburg tied the game on Caleb Weaver's 9th inning single, and won it on Nate Milligan's hit in the 10th.
