The Liberal Bee Jays had been yearning for a two out base hit. Friday night, they had more than enough two out hits on the way to a 15-4 win over the visiting Derby Twins at Brent Gould Field.
With the game tied at one in the bottom of the third, Liberal banged out four two out hits for an eight run third inning. All eight runs came with two outs. Braxton Fulford came through with the first two out single to make it 2-1. Blake Brewster ripped a two RBI single to right. Dane Simon singled home two runs. Brock Burton launched a two run homer to right center. Liberal scored two in the fifth after two Derby errors. Simon singled, stole a base, and scored in the inning. Burton drove home a run with a dribbler down third. Fulford doubled in the sixth. Clint Allen singled him home. Fulford scored on a wild pitch. The Bee Jays added two in the seventh as Jonathan Tapia singled home a run and Boone Montgomery singled home a run. Liberal out-hit Derby 15-7 and Derby had three errors.
Zach Zeller is 4-2 after pitching six solid innings allowing three runs. Channy Ortiz went two innings allowing one run. Zac Bridger pitched a scoreless inning.
