Ethan Leiter’s two-out, two-run single in the eighth inning lifted the Hays Larks to a 3-2 come from behind win over the El Dorado Broncos in the first game of their four-game series at McDonald Stadium in El Dorado Friday night.
The Larks grabbed a 1-0 lead on Cody Gougler’s RBI double in the first. The Broncos took a 2-1 lead in the sixth on two unearned runs.
Incarnate Word’s Kirk Jewasko allowed two unearned runs on five hits over seven innings for the win. The left-hander struck out two and walked one, improving to 2-0. Bradley’s Justin Ziegler pitched the final two innings for his first save.
The win improves the Larks to 7-4 and 4-3 in the Jayhawk League. The two play again Saturday and Sunday night in El Dorado.
