The Dodge City Red Demons run ruled the Liberal Redskins 13-2 in six innings Tuesday night at the National Beef Family Sports Complex. The Demons broke open a 2-0 game with seven runs on five hits and four Redskin errors in the top of the fourth.
Kwami Williams started the game on the mound and had some control issues as he walked four in the second innings. The Demons scored one in the first and one in the second before the Redskins turned a 6-4-3 double play to get out of the second inning only down 2-0. The Red Demons then broke it open with that seven run fourth. The first two batters reached on an error so none of the runs were earned. Aaron Barboza was beaned with the bases loaded in the fourth to make it 9-1 and Izzy Garcia-Rotolo singled home a run to make it 9-2 for a two run fourth. Dodge City tacked on two in the fifth and two in the sixth with one total hit.
Braden Holder pitched 1 and 2/3 without allowing an earned run. Dodge out hit the Redskins 7-3 and LHS had six errors and Dodge had two.
Liberal is 4-4 and 0-4 in the WAC and Dodge City is 6-2 and 2-0 in the WAC. Liberal hosts the Woodward Boomers Thursday at 4 for their senior day and last home games of the season.
