Redskins Dominate WAC Opener

Brock Kappelmann - April 26, 2017 7:13 am

Liberal was impressive in the WAC opener.  Playing for the first time in 10 days and playing with a 54 degree temperature and light rain falling, LHS showed no ill effects from those circumstances.  The Redskins beat Dodge City 11-2 Tuesday evening at Dodge City’s Demon Field.

The Redskins scored two in the first, three in the second, four in the third, and two in the fourth for an 11-0 lead.  The Red Demons struggled defensively with six errors.

LHS scored two in the first when Evans blasted a towering home run to left cutting through a cross wind.  He hit a three run homer to center in the second for a 5-0 lead.  In the third, Cesar Burciaga singled home a run.  Jett Brown singled home two.  Kaleb Wilmes grounded out but drove home another run.  Alex Carrillo added his third hit in the fourth and scored on a Burciaga triple which blasted off the wall in left center.  Burciaga scored on a wild pitch.

Evans is 5-0 after pitching the complete seven inning game with 95 pitches.  The KSHSAA pitch count limit is 105 pitches.  Evans struck out eight.

Liberal is 9-0 and 1-0 in the WAC while Dodge City is 7-3 and 1-2 in the WAC.  The Redskins play at Ulysses Friday and have added a double header with Perryton to the schedule Saturday at noon in Liberal.
