BENTON â€“ It didnâ€™t start well for Benton Sport Shop, but the team cleaned up their play and ended up with their first win of the season in an 11-3 decision over Malvern National Bank on Saturday at Bernard Holland Park.
Benton starter Jay Davies walked the first four batters of the game, the last one resulting in the first run of the game, but settled down and ended up giving a very solid performance. Davies would get out of the inning when Ethan Hendrix forced a man out at home and Davies would strike the next two batters out to get out of the inning.
