OAKWOOD— Johnson’s A.J. Benefield knew exactly what his job was when he stepped to the plate in the fifth inning of a tie game against Walnut Grove on Wednesday. After Trae Wilson drew an intentional walk to load the bases, Benefield was just trying to put the ball in play and give the Knights the lead. And with two strikes in the count, Benefield shortened his swing and produced a single up the middle that scored a pair of runs that helped complete a 3-1 Knights (9-5, 6-3 Region 8-AAA South) win in Oakwood.
