Schmidt Homers Twice at BJ’s Complete Sweep

Brock Kappelmann - June 19, 2017 7:21 am

Make it seven in a row.  The Liberal Bee Jays won their seventh consecutive game Sunday night 10-4 over the visiting Great Bend Bat Cats.  Kyle Schmidt launched two home runs and drove home five runs in a 3-4 night.

Jake Harrison (3-0) pitched six innings allowing three runs, striking out eight without a walk.  Chance Carner pitched a scoreless seventh, Zach Zeller allowed one in the eighth, and Lowell Schipper worked a scoreless ninth.

For the first time in the series, the Bee Jays scored first.  Great Bend walked the first two hitters before Cale O’Donnell singled home a run.  Liberal plated two in the fourth.  O’Donnell doubled and Garrett Scott doubled.  Colton Onstott’s sac fly made it 3-0 and Jaron Robinson’s singled made it 4-0.  The Bat Cats scored three in the sixth against starter Jake Harrison to make it 4-3.  But the Bee Jays answered.  Onstott walked and Robinson doubled.  Then Schmidt blasted a three run homer to left.  Brenon Rhodes then singled and Caleb Ward walked.  Chad Kennedy drove home a run with a single.  Onstott singled to lead off the seventh.  Schmidt lofted a towering homer to left to make it 10-3.

Chad Kennedy was 2-2 and reached base all five times.  Cale O’Donnell was 3-4 with two doubles and two RBI’s.

Liberal is 10-3 and Great Bend is 5-9.  The Bee Jays have Monday off and play at Oklahoma City against the Indians Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 7 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
