MAUMELLE – Ben­ton Everett Buick GMC’S

Eli Wil­liams had a big game Wed­nes­day night in Maumelle, knock­ing in six runs and pitch­ing for the win in a 15-2 rout over Maumelle.

Ben­ton would blow the doors open out of the gate in this one as Everett put up seven runs in the first in­ning to take a com­mand­ing lead.

Lead­off man Braden Car­men sin­gled and Jake Green walked be­fore Tris­tan Ham­monds knocked in a run and reached on an er­ror. Sean Small reached via walk to load the bases be­fore Blake Far­rell knocked in two more with a 2-run sin­gle. Michael Weaver sin­gled to reload the bases for Wil­liams, who promptly hit a 3-run dou­ble for the 6-0 lead be­fore scor­ing him­self on Car­men’s RBI knock for the 7-0 ad­van­tage.

Maumelle held Ben­ton score­less in the sec­ond and picked up two runs, one earned, in the bot­tom of the in­ning, but Everett struck again in the third with an 8-spot. Weaver and Wil­liams sin­gled to start the in­ning and Bren­dan Burkes knocked in a run with a sin­gle of his own. Gage Ashal­in­tubbi walked and Car­men sin­gled be­fore

Green’s RBI sin­gle. A walk to Ham­monds and an RBI sin­gle from Small en­sued be­fore Far­rell was hit by a pitch. After a strike­out, Wil­liams came through again with a bases-clear­ing hit for three more RBIS to set the 15-2 fi­nal.

Wil­liams fin­ished 3 for 3 with a run and six RBIS, and Car­men was 3 for 3 as well, scor­ing twice with an RBI. Weaver went 2 for 3 with two runs, Far­rell 1 for 2 with two runs and two RBIS, and Green, Small and Burkes all had a hit and RBI apiece.

Wil­liams was solid on the mound as well, giv­ing up two runs (one earned) on one hit and three walks, strik­ing out two in three in­nings pitched.

Everett will head to Mor­ril­ton for a twin bill on Satur­day, with the first game set for 11 a.m.
