BENTON â€“ The Benton McClendonâ€™s were up in both games of their doubleheader against the AAA Texarkana Razorbacks in American Legion baseball action on Friday, but ended up with 10-9 and 2-1 losses to fall to 0-3 on the young season.
In Game 2, Benton was up 1-0 with two outs and runners at second and third, with an 0-2 count when McClendonâ€™s catcher Shawn Beesley overthrew his pitcher Hunter McDade, which resulted in the tying and winning runs to come around the score, when no one was backing up. Benton Coach Brandon Wake thought he had seen everything in his years coaching baseball.
FAYETTEVILLE -Â Trent Daniel repeatedlyÂ represented Bryant andÂ never opposed Bryant.Â
Until perhapsÂ FridayÂ night in Manhattan, Kan.Â For Daniel would be pitching againstÂ Bryant should the Arkansas Razorbacks summon their senior southpawÂ native son of Bryant, Ark., to relieve vs.Â Bryant University in theÂ first round of the four-team, double-eliminationÂ ManhattanÂ Baseball Regional.
â€śIâ€™ve gotten a couple of jokes from my teammates,â€ť Daniel said. â€ś Itâ€™s kind of funny being from Bryant and playing a team called Bryant, I guess.â€ť
