Leader & Times

In the first six games of the season, the Liberal Bee Jays have shown power from the plate, and Friday’s win over Park City was further evidence in a 12-4 win.

Other than a 4-2 loss to the Kansas Cannons, the Bee Jays have not scored less than eight runs in their five wins in the 5-1 start.

Liberal trailed Park City early after a solo home run by the Rangers.

Liberal tied the game in the second, and then a string of hits in the fourth led to a 4-1 lead.

The Bee Jays continued to pelt the Park City pitchers, and Riley Bost was able to toss six solid innings for Liberal to keep the Rangers from rallying.

Trey Goodrich relieved Bost in the seventh, and JJ Rytz took the mound in the eighth and ninth to preserve the win.

Cayde Ward hit a three-run home run, and Conor Emmet had four hits in the win.

“This was a big win for us coming off an off day,” assistant Bee Jay coach Lane Hovde said. “The bats came alive as the game went on, and the pitching staff threw very well. It was a complete team effort in the win.”

The Bee Jays continued the 10-game road trip Saturday with another game with the Rangers, and then they will move over to McPherson for a two-game series with the Pipeliners.
