Summary:

Jackie Robinson West pitcher Charles McGraw escaped unscathed from a bases loaded, none-out sixth inning threat to preserve JRW's 4-2 victory and force a second title game against Elgin Classic. In that second game, McGraw hit his third and fourth home runs of the tournament and JRW used a seven-run second and a four-run third to crush Elgin Classic and win its third state title in five years. JRW had lost its tournament opener to Elgin Classic, then won five straight games (including victories over each of the other four state tournament entrants) to take the tourney title. Pelly Mott picked up the championship game victory with an eight strikeout, five hit complete game.
