The Sheridan Yellowjackets defeated the Benton Panthers 7-6 Friday night after Sheridan scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of the seventh inning with bases loaded to win the game.
Benton catcher Stuart Levy attempted to block the pitch but it bounced and went behind and Billy Wicker was able to slide in safely before Levy could make the tag.
â€śIt was a disappointing night,â€ť Benton coach Mark Balisterri said. â€śEvery error we made, it cost us. The second inning is what killed us. We had two big errors which allowed them to score four runs.
â€śThatâ€™s the inning that hurt us.â€ť
The Glen Rose â€śbrought the sticksâ€ť Friday against Cutter Morning Star, winning 19-6 at home.
The Beavers (8-4, 2-0 3A-5) jumped out to an early lead, which eventually proved to be too much for the Eagles to overcome, and the game was called after five innings.
Head coach Chase Meyers said, â€śI was happy with the way we hit the ball, and we ran the bases well, aggressively.
â€śAlso, we made some nice plays in the field. We had one error or two, but all in all not bad.â€ť
BENTON â€” Leading the game 2-1 in the bottom of the third inning, Bentonâ€™s Bailey LeVart hit a three-run home run to give the Lady Panthers a four-run cushion as Benton ended up defeating Sheridan 6-3 Friday night at home.
â€śWe have had several girls swinging a hot stick,â€ť Benton coach Eric Ryan said. â€śIt started back in Shreveport, and everybody got a good look at live pitching. Ever since then they have been real hot.
â€śThat [home run] right there just shows you when somebody gets confident in what they can do, good things will happen.â€ť
