With a pool game still to play, Jeff/GRC’s 11-year-olds clinched a spot in Tuesday’s championship with an 11-3 victory over HYR on Wednesday. They will play New Albany on Friday in their final game in pool play and will face New Albany or HYR again in Tuesday’s championship.

Left-hander Gavin Galligan pitched a complete-game four-hitter Tuesday as Jeff improved to 3-0. Galligan struck out seven and walked two in seven innings.

“He pitched a great game and did everything we asked him to do, as far as throwing off speed and hitting his spots,” GRC manager Chuck Watson said. “Him coming from the left side gives us a different dynamic.”
