The Liberal Bee Jays built a 6-0 lead on the way to a 6-4 win over the Wellington Heat at Hibbs-Hooten Field Wednesday night. The Big BJ night included two homers in the first and a triple play.

Tanner Kirk led off the game with a homer and two batters later Wigberto Nevarez jacked a two run shot over the left center field wall for a 3-0 lead. Tyler Floyd delivered a three RBI double to right center to make it 3-0 in the third.
