Bee Jays Hammer Haysville

Brock Kappelmann - June 19, 2020 6:47 am

The Liberal Bee Jays aren’t just winning games, they are dominating them.  They have now won six in a row after their 13-1 win over the Haysville Aviators Thursday night at Brent Gould Field.  They have scored double digits in five straight games.  The BJ’s have out scored opponents 88-15 in the win streak.

The Bee Jays chased home a first inning run when Wyatt Grant laced a double down the right field line.  Liberal blew the game open with a six run third.  Jack Malone led off the inning with a single and stole second.  Kade Brewer walked.  Grant singled.  Cayde Ward grounded out to score a run.  Wilson Ehrhardt rolled a two RBI double down the first base line for a 4-0 lead.  Then after a bean ball and three straight errors the BJ’s added to their lead.  Nate White singled home a run and an error in right allowed another run to score.  Liberal added a run in the fifth when AJ Folds singled and Nate White grounded out to score him.   Grant added an RBI single in the sixth for a 9-1 lead.  Liberal scored three more in the seventh and Brewer ripped an RBI double down the left field line and Grant provided another RBI single.  Haysville also walked two and committed another error.  White singled home another run in the eighth.

The Bee Jays out hit the Aviators 13-3 while Haysville had five errors and Liberal had one.  Grant was 4-5 with three RBI’s.  White drove home three runs.  Malone and Shepardson had two hits a piece.  Aaron Funk worked four flawless innings facing 13 batters and striking out five.  Calvin Hunt worked two innings allowing a run.  Cory Didier went two scoreless with five strikeouts and no walks.  Harris Shoemaker worked a scoreless ninth.

Liberal is 6-1 and Haysville is 2-2.  The same two teams are scheduled to play Friday night at Brent Gould Field.  The forecast calls for rain the game has been moved up to 6 pm with the Dugout Show at 5:45 on 1270 and  Southern Pioneer Electric is the buyout sponsor and will be giving away free hats.
