GALVA — Senior Day turned out to be a special day Thursday for the Canton-Galva baseball team.

The Eagles got back on track against Sylvan Grove by pounding out 14-2 and 18-11 victories.

“Every player had at least two hits on the night,” C-G coach Kelly Nelson said. “We lost a little focus to start the nightcap, making several errors to start the game after not making a single error in Game 1, but the boys did a great job of coming back big with the bats to put the game away. The boys did a great job of being disciplined at the plate, several times avoiding a strikeout to get a ground ball that scored a run.”

In the opener, Tanner Klingensmith was nails on the mound and received ample support. 

Offensive leaders were Connor Farnham (two hits, two runs, two RBIs), Jacob Dailey (three hits, three RBIs and two runs) and Reed Wiens (two hits, two runs, two RBIs).

In the second game, Jacob Struber was immense. He had two doubles, scored three runs and drove in four, while pitching 3 2/3 innings of relief to pick up the win, fanning six.

Farnham was on fire by going 4 for 5 with four runs scored. Other leaders were Dailey (two hits, three runs), Wiens (two hits, three RBIs), Caleb Sovde (three hits, two runs), Hunter Pearson (two hits) and Ethan Loyd (two hits).

The Eagles are at Moundridge on Monday.
