Baseball: Kiona-Benton eliminates River View

May 4, 2013 

Kiona-Benton 9, River View 5: Carl Robb struck out seven in five innings of relief Saturday and a pair of underclassmen came up big as the Bears won a play-in game to the District 5 tournament, ending the Panthers’ season in the process.

Freshman Austin Haughton had a two-run double in the fifth inning to give Kiona-Benton some breathing room, while sophomore Carson Peck had a two-run single in the second to put Kiona-Benton on top.

The victory caps a big week for the Bears, who defeated Columbia (Burbank) 4-3 in the completion of a suspended game Thursday just to force the play-in game with the Panthers.

Ashtin MacRoberts’ two RBIs led River View.
