Mike Hammett - July 27, 2013 9:56 am

The Salina Hawks Junior American Legion baseball team avoided elimination at the Class A state tournament in Burlington on Friday with a 5-4 win over Hays, thanks to Grant England’s game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the seventh.

Hays scored three times in the fifth to take a 4-2 lead, but the Hawks scored twice in the sixth to tie the game on RBIs from England and Kale Stover, setting up England’s game-winner in the seventh.

Zane Heigele picked up the win in relief.

The Hawks play Lansing in another elimination game at noon today.
