The Galesburg Legion baseball team is still trying to solve the puzzle that is Rock Island, after the visitors defeated Post 285 again yesterday at Sundberg Field. It was the third straight weekend that Galesburg fell to their rivals, having lost to them in the championship of the Washington Tournament on June 23rd, and the first setback that came at the Wheaton Tourney on June 15th. Still, Galesburg sports a solid record of 24-7 heading into this week's action, which begins tomorrow with a doubleheader against Canton. Rock Island improved to 16-4 with yesterday's 6-5 win.
