GALVA — Little River’s baseball team improved to 13-5 Tuesday by unloading some heavy lumber in a sweep of Canton-Galva. It has now gone 12-2 since a 1-3 start.

It was all Redskins in the first game, 13-2. They had back-to-back six-run innings in the second and third to break it open.

Levi Baldwin went five innings, allowing three hits.

Offensive leaders were Laramie Peters (homer, four RBIs), Kyler Cox (two hits, two RBIs), Tevin Renken (two hits, three RBIs) and J.J. Porter (two hits, two runs, two RBIs).

C-G was held to four hits, with Connor Farnham and Hunter Pearson driving in runs. Farnham took the loss, though just six of the runs he allowed were earned.

The Redskins completed the sweep with a 19-6 victory. 

Little River pounded away, with hitting stars including Zack Konen (two hits), Cox (four hits, three runs and two RBIs), Renken (two hits, four runs), Cordell Moore (three hits, three runs and three RBIs), Peters (two RBIs, two runs), Baldwin (two hits, two runs), Jeb Sauer (three RBIs) and Porter (two hits).

Reed Wiens drove in two runs for C-G. 

Grant Harvey was the winner and Nick Bray took the loss.

Canton-Galva coach Kelly Nelson said his team must do a better job of not being so generous. Eagle pitchers allowed 12 walks in the first game and committed nine errors in the second game.
