Wichita State’s Tyler Baker slugged a solo homer over the right field wall to give the BJ’s an 8-7 lead in the 11th and Coffeyville’s John Branum worked a scoreless 11th for his fifth save.

The BJ’s took a 3-2 lead in the fourth Dalton Bernardi doubled with one out and scored after Seward’s Jake Barrios singled and Bernardi scored on an error by the left fielder. Rainey’s suicide squeeze bunt scored Miller in the fifth to make it 4-2 BJ’s. Dodge Scored a run in the sixth to make it 4-3.
Liberal made it 5-3 in the seventh when Miller hit his first homer of the season over the left field wall. Dodge scored in the bottom of the inning to make it 5-4. Liberal took a 6-4 lead in the eighth when Barrios singled home Louisiana Tech’s Stephen Gandy. The A’s scored in the bottom of the inning to make it 6-5.
The A’s scored a run to tie it in the ninth when the BJ second baseman misplayed a ground ball which would have been the final out of the game. But UTA’s Sibley drove home Arizona’s Tyler Parmenter with a single in the 10th. Dodge was down to their last strike on multiple occasions in the 10th but came back with three straight singles against reliever Dalton Bernardi to tie the game.
Baker hit his first homer of the year in the 11th over the rigth field wall for the lead.
