BENTON â Benton McClendon Appliances rallied late and held on to win 11-9 against Jacksonville Gwatney Chevrolet on Bill Perry Field at Bernard Holland Park on Saturday.
âWe just fought through,â Benton Coach Brandon Wake said. âWe just talked to them and told them we have seen this pitcher twice now and itâs time to go to work. Iâd like to improve on getting ahead in the count. Weâre going to work on [it].â
It is not that big of a surprise that the St. Louis Cardinals are near the top for best record in baseball at the halfway point. A force to be reckoned with over the past decade, the Cardinals have been in and out of the playoffs and on both the positive and negative side of the World Series trophy.
RUSSELLVILLE â The Benton McClendonâs Appliances hit into four double plays in a 3-0 loss to Russellville Post 20 at Arkansas Tech University in Russellville on Wednesday. The loss sets the McClendonâs down to 7-12 on the year.
Russellville scored just one run in the first inning despite three walks and two hits issued by starter Trey Bishop. Post 20 would score just two unearned runs in the bottom of the third to take a 3-0 lead which would hold up for the rest of the game.
