Legion Ends Regular Season With 30 Wins
The last two home games of the regular season for the Galesburg American Legion Baseball team were winners. Post 285 got past East Moline in game 1 of a double-header Saturday 11-9, and in game two 7-6. A seven-run fourth inning made the difference in Game 1, helped by a Dalton Davis home run. Chris Fields was the winning pitcher, with Jesse Hines getting the save.

In game two, 2 runs in the bottom of the 5th inning helped cement the lead for Post 285, in what otherwise was a back-and-forth game. Colton Crane was the winner in that game, with Luke Ryan getting the save.

Post 285 ends the regular season with a record of 30-10, and will start the 15th District Tournament Tuesday afternoon versus Quincy. Galesburg plays host to the state American Legion Tournament starting July 12th.
