Tanner Timms had two of Benton’s seven hits, including a double. Cade Scott also had a double. Cade Paddy had two RBI.

The Tigers rallied from a 4-2 deficit after three innings.

A leadoff double by Timms followed by Jack Walters’ single tied the game at 4 in the sixth. Scott’s double moved Walters to third. Paddy’s sacrifice fly then scored Walters with the go-ahead run.
