Minden kept Benton within striking mileage, but never could separate through with the clutch attack they needed, falling 4-1 to your No. 2 team going to school 4A and district 1-4A frontrunner.
Minden get two runners on with fewer than one out in the third as well as fourth innings, with only one cost show for it.
Tide starter Steve Volentine was exceptional on the clump through his first 5 innings of his complete-game outing, dispersing hits and stranding Tiger baserunners to hold Minden in contention. He carried out with only one strikeout and gave up Eleven hits, pitching well enough for you to earn the win had the Tide not squandered odds at the plate.
Hunter Wilkes and Austin Divider led Minden, each going 2-3 by using two singles, while Cameron Buck and Rodney Johnson each extra line-drive singles off Benton starter Cameron Ross.
