For the first time since June 9, the Liberal Bee Jays have lost a baseball game. After 10 consecutive wins, the BJ bats fell silent I bet a 3-2 loss to the El Dorado Broncos Friday night at McDonald Stadium and Brad Law Field in El Dorado. Liberal had only two hits.
Darrin Cook pitched six strong innings for the Bee Jays allowing one run, with six strikeouts, and one walk. Derek Craft pitched 1 and 2/3 scoreless with four strikeouts.
El Dorado’s pitcher Hunter Larson was pitching a no hitter through 5 and 1/3 until a Zac Cook line drove up the middle struck Larson in the side of his head.
