TUPELO  203  010  x  — 6  5  2

C. Mack, B. Mack (3), Davis (6) and Carper. Matt Benedict and Tanner Davis. WP-Benedict (5-2). LP-C. Mack. 2B-C. Mack, Taylor, Chandler, Jones (R); Brandon Maggia, Davis, Trey Roberson (T).

NOTEWORTHY: Matt Benedict scattered 10 hits for his fifth straight victory, and Tupelo (No. 2 in Class B) beat Rattan (No. 4 in Class A), despite being outhit 10-5. Brandon Maggia and Tanner Davis stroke back-to-back RBI doubles in the first inning to give Tupelo an early 2-0 lead, and the Tigers added three runs in the third. Trey Roberson closed out the scoring with an RBI double in the bottom of the fifth to score Brandon Chamberlain, who had singled. 

COACHES QUOTE: “It was a good win. Rattan has a good ball club. They’re probably the best offensive club we’ve seen. Benedict didn’t have his best stuff, but he made some big pitches to get out of some jams. It looks like we’re start the play well in all three phases at the right time.” — Tupelo coach Clay Weller.

Team Records: Tupelo 17-5
