Leader & Times

After an 8-3 win on opening night against the Kansas Cannons, the Bee Jays played a double header on Saturday and a single game on Sunday. The Bee Jays split the double header and won the series finale to start the season 3-1.

The Bee Jays dropped the first game of the double header 4-2 and were in a 1-1 tie through five-and-a-half innings in the nightcap before a seven-run sixth led to an 8-1.

The Bee Jays took advantage of two hits and six walks in the big innings.

The Bee Jays played a rare Sunday matinee game to end the four-game series in their new Kansas Collegiate League schedule, and after having a 3-2 lead, the Bee Jays blew tha game open in the fifth after Trevor MacDonald led off with a single and Aiden Shepardson followed with a double. Jordan Williams walked to load the bases, and Justin Quinn followed with an RBI single to push the lead to 4-2.

But the Cannons were able to get back-to-back strikeouts, and the Bee Jays were in danger of leaving the bases loaded with only scoring one run in the inning.

But Blake Dickman sent a pitch deep over the center field wall for a grand slam that gave the Bee Jays an 8-2 lead.

Liberal added two more runs in the sixth when Shepardson and Williams scored, but the Cannons battled back with three runs in the seventh to cut the lead to 10-5.

The Bee Jays added two more runs in the eighth, and the Cannons could not score in the ninth, and the Bee Jays took three of the four games with a 12-5 win.

Liberal traveled to Augusta for two more non-league games against the Cannons today and Wednesday to start a 10-game road trip for the Bee Jays.
