Bee Jays Collapse in Ninth Inning of Loss

Brock Kappelmann - June 4, 2018 7:34 am

It was almost a sweep.  After polishing off 16-0 and 13-2 wins the previous two evenings, the Liberal Bee Jays built a 9-4 lead after seven and led 9-5 going into the ninth.  The Oklahoma City Indians rallied to score eight runs in the ninth to shock Liberal 13-9.  The Bee Jays scored five in the third before both teams tallied single runs in the fourth for a 6-1 BJ lead.  The Indians scratched across a run in the fifth to make it 6-2.  OKC scored two in the sixth to make it 6-4.  Liberal countered with one in the sixth and two in the seventh to lead 9-4.  Oklahoma City scored one in the eighth and eight in the ninth to win it and salvage the final game of this non league series.  Peyton Johnson doubled twice and Tom Lichty and Brett Vosik added doubles.  Channy Ortiz tripled.  Brett Mathews and Hayden Udall tossed two scoreless innings a piece.  Liberal is 2-1 and will open Jayhawk League play at Haysville against the Aviators Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday night at 7 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
