Larks Edge Liberal For 8th Straight Win
Begel struck out three and walked just one and improves to 3-2 on the season.
Busboom gave the Larks a 1-0 led in the second with his sixth home run of the season. Tito Andino added an RBI single to make it 2-0.
The Bee Jays scored their lone run in the fourth on a squeeze play but Begel and Colton Reavis, who worked a 1-2-3 ninth for his sixth save, shut them down the rest of the way.
The Larks increase their Jayhawk League lead to three-games with four to play. They are off today before hosting Derby in the first of a three-game weekend series Friday. Admission is free for the 7pm game thanks to the Chestnut Street District and Insurance Planning.
