LEXINGTON -- After clinching the outright Eastern Illinois Baseball League regular-season title, the Buckley Dutchmasters swept Game Seven Legacy in their last doubleheader of the regular season.

In the third inning, Evan Regez singled to center field with one out. With two outs, Quinton Hatfill reached base on an error before Regez crossed home plate on a wild pitch and another error on a Drew Schrodt ground ball resulted in Hatfill scoring to extend the Dutchmasters' lead to 2-0.

In game two, Buckley won 14-1 thanks to a 14-run effort that included a 4-for-5 performance from Krumwiede, a 3-for-5 effort from Stewart and a 2-for-4 outing from Walker.
The Dutchmasters scored two runs in the second inning to take a 2-1 lead.
