Raiders blast Indianola
By TAYLOR MITCHELL
Benton Academy didn’t start the 2012 baseball season on fire. But lately they have been.
With an 8-4 victory against Indianola Academy Tuesday night, the Raiders (9-4) recorded their seventh straight victory.
On Tuesday night, the Raiders got their bats going early and often, hitting the ball hard and far nearly every time. Benton plated three runs in the bottom of the second inning, but saw Indianola respond with a run of their own in the top of the third.
The Raiders exploded for four runs in the bottom of the third to take a commanding 7-1 lead. Indianola, though, wouldn’t go away quietly into the night.
