Slammin' Sammy: I have a love/hate relationship with football

July 29, 2011

Benton earns trip to World Series

July 26, 2011

The Benton 12-year-olds defeated Blytheville 8-2 Monday night to win the 12-year-old Southwest Regional Championship and earn a trip to the Cal Ripken Major/60 World Series on August 12-19 in Visalia, Calif.
It is the third consecutive regional championship for Benton, which also won the Southwest title as 10 and 11-year-olds. Benton, who hosted the tournament for the first time, allowed just five runs over its four-game run through the tournament at Bernard Holland Park.
Blytheville came through the loser’s bracket to make the championship game.

Benton advances to tourney final

July 25, 2011

Siloam Springs’ leadoff batter worked his way around the diamond to score the game’s first run after an error allowed Daniel Kent to reach third. No other Siloam batter would reach as far as second base.
Benton’s Kaleb Moody painted the outer half of the plate for four innings, including nine ground ball outs, to take the win 11-1.
Buddy Riggan and Jacob Cooper each hit solo home runs in the second to give Benton the lead. Seven more hits and three Siloam errors later led to nine more Benton runs.
