Rockwall-Heath blasts North Dallas, 10-0, in baseball playoffs


WYLIE-The Dallas Morning News’ Player-of-the-Week Drew Benefield blasted a grand slam home run and Jake Thompson threw a four-hitter as Rockwall-Heath slammed North Dallas, 10-0, Tuesday night at Wylie to advance in the Area baseball playoffs.

Drew VerHagen also homered for the Hawks (25-8), who supported Thompson with 12 hits and no errors in the field.

Benefield received the Player-of-the-Week honor on the strength of his hitting and pitching in last week;s playoff games, now that he is finally healthy after recovering from arthroscopic knee surgery, which caused him to miss half of the season. 

The next game is not yet announced, but will be later this week.
