Brian Bennett had a heck of an Over 30 Modified Softball League game for Accent Staffing on Tuesday at Betts Park; not only did Bennett go 3-for-5 offensively, but got the win AND save from the pitching circle.
Accent went up 14-1 for the starting pitcher Bennett, before a reliever gave up 11 runs to American Legion in the bottom of the fourth. Bennett came in and shut the door for the save - for his own win.
Brady Williams was 4-for-5, including two triples, for Accent Staffing, and Pete Edling had a double, triple and home run, in the team's 21-hit attack.
