Keaton Cloyd's squeeze bunt drove in Tyler Johnson with the decisive run as Bentonville tuned up for the Class 7A state tournament with a nonconference victory at Greenwood.

The Tigers (15-10) headed into the seventh inning with a 2-1 deficit, but that was erased when Brooks McDowell was hit by a pitch and scored when Johnson tripled into right field. Cloyd then dropped the bunt and allowed Johnson to score.

Arkansas-Little Rock signee Nathan Lyons, the fourth of five Bentonville pitchers used, pitched 1 1/3 innings and picked up the victory, while Levi Bennett threw only seven pitches to retire Greenwood in order and get the save.

Johnson finished with three of the Tigers' nine hits and scored their only other run on a double by Sam Golden.

Bentonville will play North Little Rock in Thursday's opening round of the Class 7A State Tournament, which is being held at Burns Park in North Little Rock.
