Canton had a tougher road to the second place trophy. After losing to Pekin on Thursday, Canton beat Pittsfield on Friday and Pekin and Rock Island on Saturday. Galesburg now posts a lopsided 274 won-loss record for the season and earlier this season won the Double I league third run of the inning. The three runs in the second frame came as Thiel cleared !he left field fence to score Jackson and Ron Nelson as well as himself. Jackson had walked and stolen second, while Nelson had reached base on a single. In the top of the third, Canton pushed across one run, but Galesburg came back with one in the second half of the inning. Tony Nelson batted in Wilder, who had singled and stolen second. came in the sixth as Galesburg's Ron Neipo-n doubled in Franckey, who had walked. Les Hunter was the loser for Canton after yielding four hits and six runs in the first two innings. Reliever Tom Yocum gave up three hits and two runs in the other six innings. Galesburg coach Fred Stevens felt "we were in command most of the way" but pointed out that Canton can take advantage of mistakes as shown by the fourth inning rally. In looking forward to the state tourney, the Legion mentor insisted, Galesburg will not play until 1 p.m. Friday if the team suffers a loss in the first game. In Saturday's division play, Canton eliminated Pekin 8-4 in the first game, while Galesburg routed Rock Island 16-5 in the second game. Canton then handed Rock Island a 14-7 loss in the third game. Galesburg's win came behind the route-going effort and ninth victory by Berry. Robbie Johnson pounded out three hits in four trips to the plate to lead the offense.

Galesburg's entry in the CICL played Charleston-Mattoon in four home' games and lost them all. The Pioneers were beaten 3-0 and 2-0 Saturday and came out on the short end of 8-3 and 8-0 scores on Sunday. All four games were played at Knox's Blodgett Field. The first game Sunday went two extra innings with the Twins scoring five runs in the top of the ninth. Galesburg, which has won just four games in the second half competition, will finish the season Tuesday night with a doubleheader at H. T. Custer Park. It will be major league night Tuesday with autographed baseballs and photographs to be given away. Galesburg got a couple of good pitching jobs in the Saturday twin bill but could come up with only five hits in the two games. Highlight of the Sunday doubleheader was a first-game rhubarb after a call at second base that resulted in Pioneer Mark Miller and coach Jim Isaacson getting thrown out of the game. Umpire Dick Sturgeon informed Isaacson that hp had thrown out his second baseman for swearing at him. The Pioneer coach then asked what did he say, "Darn or gosh?" It was shortly after that conversation that Isaacson was also ejected from the game. The Pioneers had a golden opportunity to win the first game of the Sunday twin bill when they loaded the bases with just one out. Miller then hit a line Paul Kreke allowed only five hits, but his teammates could get only three off Andy Otting. In the opener Saturday, Barry Koeneke relieved starter Steve Klein who walked the first four batters. All three runs were charged to Klein as Koeneke pitched shutout ball the rest of the way. C-M hurler Mark Shimpe stopped the Pioneers on three hits. Mike Heimerdinger swung the best bat for Galesburg over the weekend with five hits in 11 trips to the plate. However, he was catching the second game Sunday and had to leave the game in the first inning because of an injury..
