Another Dud Against Dodge City for Bee Jays

Brock Kappelmann - July 5, 2018 6:46 am

The Liberal Bee Jays fizzled on the 4th of July.  In front of their big Independence Day crowd, the Bee Jays lost to the visiting Dodge City A’s 8-2 Wednesday night at Brent Gould Field.  The BJ’s have lost three of four to the A’s. It’s their first 4th of July loss since 2015.

Liberal got off to a good start scoring twice in the first thanks in part the three Dodge City walks and a bean ball.  Jack Krauel singled home a run.  But Liberal left the bases loaded.  Liberal left to more on in the second.  The A’s broke through against starter Hayden Udall scoring five in the fifth.  The Bee Jays walked one and beaned one in the inning as the A’s broke through in an inning which included a ground ball hit over first which appeared foul but was called fair by the umpire.  The A’s added one in the seventh and two in the ninth.  Udall pitched four innings allowing five runs before Zach Zeller went 2 and 2/3 allowing a run.  Christian Isenhour went 1 and 1/3 scoreless.  Zac Bridger allowed two runs without retiring anyone.  Boone Montgomery went one scoreless inning.  Dodge City out-hit Liberal 11-6.  Liberal committed the game’s only two errors making 13 errors in the past three games against the A’s.

Liberal is 15-10 overall and 13-9 in the Jayhawk League while Dodge City is 9-9 in the league.  Liberal plays at Dodge City for the final time this season Thursday night at 7;30 with pre-game at 7:15 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.  The Bee Jays won’t play at home again until July 13.
