Also in 3A Regional baseball, the Effingham Hearts held on for a 7-6 win over the Salem Wildcats in Olney Wednesday.

The Hearts stepped out to a 2-0 first inning lead on the Wildcats. Brayden Bone started the game off with a hit. With one out, Drew Levitt had a hit. Both runners came home.

In the third inning, the Hearts tallied four more runs to lead 6-1. Dirk Levitt singled home Carter Hayes and Devin Mayfield singled home Levitt.

EHS pushed across one more run in the fourth which would prove to be the game winner as Salem came roaring back. The Wildcats pulled within 7-2 in the sixth then tallied four runs in the final inning but just fell short.

Drew Levitt reached base three times for the Hearts with a single, double and walk. He had one RBI and scored twice. Kevin Daughtery picked up the pitching win on a five-hitter with no walks and seven strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings.

The win propels the Hearts into the regional championship game at noon Saturday against the winner of Thursday's Mattoon/Charleston game.
