For the first time since 1997, the Liberal Bee Jays didn’t have a hit. Santa Barbara’s Sean Johnson (6 innings) Coleman Huntley, Peyton Pallette, and Elijah Trest combined to no-hit the Bee Jays. Liberal lost the game 8-0. Cody Bigford walked to lead off the ninth or it would have been a perfect game.
Cole Evans was stellar for the Bee Jays. He pitched 5 and 2/3 innings striking out six and walking two. He allowed three runs but two were earned. The Foresters scored an unearned run in the second and they hit a home run to lead off the third. The Foresters added a run in the sixth, a run in the eighth, and four in the ninth. John Kelly pitched 2 and 2/3 and Rafferty Brown went 2/3.
It’s the first time the Bee Jays have been no-hit since Jason Stanford of Hays tossed a no hitter against the Bee Jays at Larks Park in 1997. Liberal is 30-8 and Santa Barbara is 27-4. The Bee Jays play the Houston Express Friday night at 6 at Eck Stadium in Wichita. Dugout Show at 5:45 on 1270 and kscbnews.net.
