Bee Jays Take Round One Over Hays

Brock Kappelmann - June 18, 2019 7:02 am

The Liberal Bee Jays handed the Hays Larks at rare loss Monday night at Brent Gould Field.  The Bee Jays beat Hays 5-4 to win their first KCLB division game of the season.

Hays scored single runs in the first, second, and third innings against starter Jon Sotto.  The Bee Jays scored four in the fourth to take the lead in front of an enthusiastic Brent Gould Field crowd.  Corbin Truslow, Cayde Ward, and Blake Dickman singled to lead off the inning.  Dickman’s single got the BJ’s on the board.  Trevor Beard ripped a two RBI single down the left field line to tie it at 3-3.  Aiden Shepardson then singled to left and runners advanced a base due to error.  Beard scored on a wild pitch.  Hays tied the game in the sixth.  Liberal took the lead in the eighth.  With runners a first and second and one out, a ground ball to third resulted in a force out at third but the throw to first was wild.  Jordan Williams would score all the way from first.

Jon Sotto pitched six innings for the Bee Jays allowing four runs.  Jared Goodrich went two scoreless innings and Jake Reed worked a perfect ninth for the save.  Liberal out-hit Hays 11-7.  Hays had three errors and Liberal had two.

Liberal is 10-4 overall, 9-4 in the KCLB, and 1-0 in the KCLB Jayhawk West.  Hays had a 12 game winning streak snapped.  The Larks are 13-2 overall, 12-1 in the KCLB, and 4-1 in the Jayhawk West.  The same two teams meet at 7 Tuesday night at Brent Gould Field.  The Dugout Show begins at 6:45 on 1270 and  Golden Plains Credit Union is the buyout.
