On a dreary gray at the ballpark, Liberal played at home for the final time. With temperatures in the low 40’s, the Redskins played like the weather in a game one 18-7 loss but bounced back for one of their better showings of the season with a 17-8 game two win.
Liberal committed nine errors in the game one loss. Woodward scored one in the first, two in the second, five in the third, and five in the fourth for the 13-0 lead after four. The Redskins plated seven in the fifth but then coughed up five in the sixth. Shay Kerr had two hits and two RBI’s in the loss. Aaron Barboza started the game and pitched three innings allowing nine runs but only one was earned.
Liberal jumped on the Boomers early in game two with four in the first, one in the second, six in the third, two in the fourth, and four in the fifth. Woodward scored one in the third as the Redskins built an 11-1 lead after three and led 13-1 after four. Woodward’s seven run fifth made it 13-8. Aaron Barboza was 3-4 with three runs. Shay Kerr was 2-4 with three RBI’s. Braden Holder pitched five innings without allowing an earned run. Oscar Rubio pitched two scoreless innings to close it out.
