BENTON — Aaron Davidson pitched a four-hit shutout and John Newman belted a three-run homer as the Bryant Blacksox AA American Legion team whipped its rival from Benton, 3-0, on Tuesday, June 1.

Davidson walked just one and struck out six as the Sox improved to 7-3 on the season. Benton managed singles in the second, third, fifth and sixth innings. Only in the sixth were they able to put two runners aboard as the single followed a one-out double. But the Sox turned a doubleplay to end the threat.

Newman’s tell-tale blast came in the third inning. It came after one-out singles by Danny Reimenschneider and David Hurt. An out later, Newman unloaded.

The Sox managed just one hit the rest of the game, a seventh-inning single by Hurt. But Davidson and the defense made it hold up for the win.
