Glencoe VFW sweeps Delano

The Glencoe VFW Post 5102 baseball team kept up its winning ways by claiming a doubleheader sweep of visiting Delano on a gloriously comfortable night at Vollmer Field.
Carsen Streich took the ball as the starting pitcher for the opening game and tossed a two-hit, six-strikeout gem at the Tigers, allowing two earned runs over six innings in a 4-2 Panthers win.
