BRYANT â€” The Bryant Black Sox American Legion baseball team used a barrage of hits and a couple of errors in the fifth inning to score five runs as they eventually defeated Hope 11-3 Saturday during the Zone 4 Senior Legion Tournament at Bryant High School.
Trailing 3-1 in the fifth, the Sox received back-to-back singles from Tyler Brown and Jordan Taylor. Taylorâ€™s hit was good enough to move Brown to third and he later scored on a sacrifice fly by designated hitter Landon Pickett.
Coming off its win over Jacksonville on Tuesday, the Benton McClendonâ€™s Appliance Senior Legion baseball team is confident about their chances in the Zone 4 Tournament, which begins today at Bryant High School.
â€śI think we are going to compete,â€ť manager Russell Goodwin said. â€śThere are some very good teams, such as Bryant, Texarkana, and Pine Bluff, but we are playing pretty good baseball right now.
â€śWe got some kids with a lot of enthusiasm and we ended up about .500 overall. This is a tough zone. Usually, whoever wins the Zone 4 wins the state title.â€ť
