Mike Hearne, of Palos Heights, pulled out a big win for the Redhawks in the baseball Class 4A sectional semifinal.
It was a special kind of game for Palos Heights' Mike Hearne on Wednesday. Hearne was pitching for the Marist Redhawks and a win would put them into the sectional final game. A loss would end the season. Adding to the drama was a familiar face on the mound for Providence Catholic, Mike's cousin David Hearne. The Redhawks started off rough, giving up four runs in the first inning, but Hearne was able to calm the storm and Marist won 9-5. "I settled down a little bit," he said. "I just had to get that hold because I knew we'd come alive sometime." Both cousins will be attending Notre Dame in the fall.

That one was David and his Providence Celtics, which finished second in the state tournament last year. After four innings of great throwing, David and the Providence bullpen lost control of their pitches and the game, ultimately losing 9-5. Mike Hearne saw the opposite fate on …
