The Bryant Black Sox hosted Texarkana for a doubleheader on Wednesday night and split the two games. In the first game, the Black Sox were shut out for the first time this season losing 8-0, but won the second game 14-7.
Bryantâ€™s Hunter Mayall had two of the Black Soxâ€™ five hits in game one as Texarkana pitcher Tim Buchanan was lights out all game. Buchanan gave up the five hits in the complete-game win, allowing no runs and no walks while striking out four.
Nearly 40 restaurants are expected to be featuring menu items at the upcoming 13th annual Taste of Bryant, according to Bryant Area Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Rae Ann Fields.
"With all these restaurants looking to come here, we must be doing something right," she said. "It also says to me that (Saline County residents) must love our food."
A 44-year-old Bryant woman reportedly died in a two-vehicle crash on Tuesday afternoon, according to the Arkansas State Police.
Jo Carey was reported to be driving eastbound on U.S. 70 near Browning Road when the vehicle crossed the center line just after 12:30 p.m. and struck a vehicle in the westbound shoulder of the roadway. James Buck, driver of the second vehicle, and passenger Judy Buck, both of Bonnerdale, reported that they tried to avoid the vehicle driven by Carey.
