OTTAWA, Ill. – Patrick Killelea had a big day Friday, driving in seven runs and earning a victory on the hill as the Northern Illinois Reds swept a doubleheader with the American Legion Post 33 Chiefs.

The former Marquette Crusader swung a hot bat in the first game against the Ottawa-based Legion squad, going 4-for-5 with two doubles and seven RBIs to lead the Reds to a 12-2 win. Matt Allen earned the win, striking out six.

The Chiefs fell despite a strong effort from Tristan DeBernardi, who collected four hits and scored once.
The second game went to the Reds 13-2 in five innings, with Killelea earning the abbreviated win. Ottawa High School senior Nick Quick broke out with four hits, four RBIs and three runs scored, while Bret Johnson plated three more and tallied three hits.

CHILLICOTHE, Ill. – The Naplate Titans are no longer perfect, but still posted a nice finish over the weekend’s St. Jude Brad Wallin Tournament.

The 11U travel team won a pair of pool games and a pair of bracket matches before dropping the tournament semifinal and earning a third-place finish at the 36-team event.

Shane Reynolds was excellent in the opener, striking out 10 hitters in a 2-1 win over Bloomington. Kadon Harth launched a two-run home run to provide the Naplate offenses.

Reynolds then blasted two homers in the second pool game, and drove in four runs total in an 11-2 rout of Prairie Central. Trez Rybarczyk struck out nine to earn the win, and also hit a grand slam.

Bracket play started well for the Titans with a narrow 6-5 win over Minooka. Jalen Flavel led the offense with three RBIs, and Reynolds struck out seven in relief to earn the victory.

Naplate then cruised in the quarterfinals, beating Springfield 8-0, with Reynolds again in a starring role. He homered twice and earned his third victory of the tournament.

The Pekin Gamers finally had the answer for Naplate, running past the Titans 11-5 in the tournament semifinals. Rybarczyk homered, and Jacob Serby allowed just two earned runs in the loss.

The Titans rebounded with a 7-0 win over Limestone in the third-place game, with Rybarczyk driving in two runs and earning the victory on the mound. Levi Sholders had two RBIs for Naplate.

The Titans are now 25-1 on the season.
