For the third time on their Sooner State road trip, the Liberal baseball team built a lead only to see it evaporate late.  This time it was in Alva as the Goldbugs hit a walk off home run to beat LHS 6-5 Saturday afternoon.  The game was a quick addition to the schedule as two of the four games at Guthrie were rained out.

Alva scored three in the fourth before the Redskins put up a three spot in the sixth.  The Redskins scored two in the seventh to lead 5-3 going into the bottom of the seventh.  Alva scored three to win it in the bottom of the seventh on a walk off homer by Slater.

Liberal out hit Alva 8-5 and  Liberal’s one error was the only error of the game.  Oscar Rubio was 3-4 for the Redskins.  Hunter Huskey and Aaron Barboza hit doubles.  Aaron Archuleta pitched 3 and 1/3 allowing three earned runs.  Braden Holder went three innings allowing two earned runs.  Holder did not issue a walk.

Liberal is 5-8 and plays at Garden City Monday night at 6 on 1270 and
