The Liberal Bee Jays are still alive at the NBC World Series. The Bee Jays held off the Houston Tuzos 4-2 Monday evening at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium in Wichita. The Bee Jays play Kansas Alumni at 10 Tuesday night.
Cody Tillotson (4-0) pitched seven strong innings and allowed just one hit and no runs. The Bee Jays scored two in the second when Jason Dahl lined an inside the park homerun to center when the Tuzo center fielder dove for the ball but it skipped all the way to the wall while Dahl circles the bases.
The Bee Jays loaded the bases with no outs in the fourth but only scored one run thanks to an RBI single by Lewis Guilbeau. The Bee Jays added another run in the fifth when Dahl tripled home a run with a line drive to left center.
The Bee Jays are 26-18 and the Tuzos finish 22-6.
Liberal plays late tonight on Talkradio 1270 and kscbnews.net.
