Error poves costly, Lions eliminate RHHS
ALBION - Red Hill High School's baseball team made only one error Wednesday, but it proved to be a costly one.

The Saluki miscue led to a three-run inning for host Edwards County, who held off Red Hill, 3-1, in the semifinals of the Illinois High School Association Class 1A regional tournament.

"We played well defensively," said Red Hill coach Mike Wallace, whose team finished 4-12. "They took advantage of our one error that extended the inning."

The Salukis scored their run in the top of the first, when Grant Gaither's base hit drove in Dalton Murray, who had also singled.

The lead held up until the bottom of the third, when the Lions scored three times against RHHS starter Jacob Wirth.

Ryan Kolb's single was the only other hit for the Salukis.

Wirth gave up three hits and three runs - none of which were earned - in taking the pitching loss. In four innings, he walked three hitters and struck out a pair.

Murray pitched two perfect innings in relief, registering a strikeout.

"Wirth and Murray both pitched really well," said Wallace. "Once again we fell short of getting the big hit later in the game when we needed it."

Nate Utley buckled down after giving up the run in the opening inning to earn the pitching win. He gave up all three Red Hill hits, and the Saliuki run was unearned. Utley fanned two batters and walked six.

Kevin Schuh retired all three hitters he faced in the top of the seventh to earn the save for the Lions.

In Wednesday's second semifinal, Hutsonville needed eight innings to down Cisne, 8-4.

Edwards County will host Hutsonville in Saturday's 11 a.m. championship game.
