Effingham High School spilt an Apollo Conference doubleheader with Salem Saturday.

In the opener, Preston Walker pitched seven solid innings but the Wildcats scored the only run they needed for the 1-0 victory.

Walker struck out six batters, allowed five hits and two walks. The lone run came in the first inning on an RBI double by Conklin.

"Preston did a great job of pitching," said EHS Coach Chris Fleener. "But we just couldn't get the big hit for him."

In the second contest, Swayde Sanders doubled in the fifth and sixth innings as the Hearts took an 8-5 win over the Wildcats.

Braydon Bone picked up the pitching win, allowing three runs on three hits, one walk and one strikeout.

The game was never in doubt after the fourth as the Hearts scored four runs on two singles. EHS tallied two more in the fifth and then followed it up with two more in the sixth. Michael Woltman had an RBI single in the fifth.

"Today we had some good leadership by our seniors and the rest of the team stepped in and did their part in game two," said Fleener.

EHS is now 14-11 on the season.

The Hearts lost both freshmen/sophomore games, 9-3 and 15-5.
