Wildcats in Greenville Today

The Salem Wildcats are back on the field today as they

travel to Greenville for the Ish Smith Classic.

The Wildcats will be in action against Vandalia and Red Bud

in Greenville’s yearly baseball invitational.

Salem is coming off a 5-4 home loss to Centralia on

Wednesday. It was a game the Cats led 4-2 until the seventh inning, when the

Orphans tied the contest and forced extra innings.

Despite the loss, Salem knocked the rust off the bats and

hit the ball well. The Wildcats also had good outings from their pitchers. Zach

Tate threw seven innings in a no-decision. Wyatt McGhee allowed just one hit

and struck out two in his long inning of work, but that hit was an RBI double

that ended up being the game-winner for Centralia.

Salem’s Thursday games against Woodlawn and Flora were

rained out. The Wildcats are looking for a late-season surge with the regional

tournament starting in less than two weeks.
