Bee Jays Surge to Sixth Straight

Brock Kappelmann - June 18, 2017 9:57 am

It’s six and counting for the Liberal Bee Jays.  The BJ’s knocked off the Great Bend Bat Cats 7-1 Saturday night in front of a big Brent Gould Field crowd for Kids Night.

Sam Beattie (2-1) pitched six strong innings for the win without walking anyone.  Beattie did not allow an earned run.  Derek Craft went two scoreless innings.  Zach Autin made his BJ debut with a scoreless ninth.

The Bat Cats scored first with a run in the fourth.  The run was unearned as Liberal committed two errors.  The Bee Jays took a 2-1 lead in the fourth.  Zac Cook doubled before Garrett Scott singled him home with a ground ball to left.  Colton Onstott lofted a double off the wall in right center against the wind.  Liberal added three in the fifth.  Gage Teer singled and advanced to second on a balk.  James Hardberger doubled to left center to score Teer and make it 3-1.  Cale O’Donnell singled home a run to give Liberal the 4-1 lead. Zac Cook scored on a wild pitch.  Liberal added two in the seventh with two outs.  O’Donnell singled and Scott walked.  Onstott reached on an error to score a run and Jaron Robinson singled home a run.

Liberal has won six straight and is 9-3 in the Jayhawk while Great Bend is 5-8.  The same two teams play Sunday night at 7 at Brent Gould Field with the Dugout Show at 6:45 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.  Madden Oil and Ruffino’s are the buyout sponsors.
