JERSEYVILLE - Jerseyville Post 492 player Abe Kribs led the Panthers with three hits, while pitcher Gage Carey held Alton Post 126 to one run on four hits in taking a 6-1 win over the Legionnaires in a baseball game played Monday evening, July 1, 2024, at Jersey Community Middle School in Jerseyville.

The game was originally set for Lloyd Hopkins Field in Gordon Moore Park, but was switched over to Jerseyville, in the wake of the soccer field collapse at Gordon Moore Park, which has left the entire park closed during the investigation and repairs.

Alton took the lead with a single run in the third, but after that, it was all Jerseyville, with three runs in the fourth, two in the fifth, and one in the seventh to take the 6-1 win.
