Post 285 easily won its opener, scoring five runs in the first inning in 9-1 romp over Calhoun County. Logan Davis was the winning pitcher. It was Galesburg’s 30th win of the season.

Win #31 came a few hours later, when the team rallied from a 3-0 deficit to beat East Moline 7-3. Colton German was the winning pitcher, and Drake Sykes had a home run.

Galesburg will play Peoria this afternoon at 3 o’clock, with the winner advancing to Thursday night’s championship game. The loser of today’s game will play tomorrow evening at 6.
