Jared Moore pitched a one-hitter through eight innings but even that wasn't enough in a frustrating 2-1 loss to the El Dorado Broncos Monday night in El Dorado.
The Broncos tie the season series with the slumping BJ's who limp out of El Dorado with two runs and 14 hits the last two nights.
K-State lefty Jared Moore pitched eight strong innings in a no-decision allowing just one hit. Cale Elam didn't allow an earned run in the ninth but takes the loss after El Dorado's lead-off man reached on an E-9.,
The Bee Jays had chances with six hits and left seven men on base the last four innings. The BJ's finally scored in the ninth when Micah Green hit a line drive sacrifice fly to left to score Toby Semler to tie the game. El Dorado scored a run when the BJ's tried to turn a 4-6-3 double play, but the shortstop's throw was off line at first.
Liberal is 28-16 overall and 18-15 in the Jayhawk. The Broncos are 18-26 overall and 11-20 in the Jayhawk.
