  • A bases-loaded walk in the seventh inning sent the South Effingham Mustangs to a 3-2 defeat at Richmond Hill on Wednesday.
  • Runs were at a premium because the teams combined to register 21 strikeouts, including 10 by South Effingham starter Jakob Valleroy.
  • Both teams scored a run in the first inning and the game remain tied until the Mustangs scratched for a fourth-inning run. The Wildcats retied the game in the sixth frame thanks to a key error, setting up the dramatic finish.
  • Dylan Wallace absorbed the loss after issuing three walks in one-third of an inning.
  • Valleroy allowed two hits and three runs over six and a third innings.
  • Jayce Warren and Chase Warren got the Mustangs' only two hits.
