Park City (4-10), who had scored a total of 13 runs in the first three games of the series, put up 11 in the top of the first off of Nash Neff.
The Larks used a six-run third to get back in the game. They added two in the fourth, one in the fifth, another run in the seventh before plating eight in the eighth to complete the comeback.
Hernan Yanez drove in Drake Angeron with a single in the eighth to tie the game. George Southerland followed later with a two-run single to left field to put the Larks ahead.
Southerland and Justin Lee both had three of the Larks 21 hits. Mikey Gangwish hit a two-run double in the third then added a two-run homer in the fourth.
Third baseman Brook Brannon pitched the final two innings and picked up the win. Brannon allowed only an infield single in his summer pitching debut.
The Larks have won 12 straight as they enter a key four-game KCLB Jayhawk West Division series with Liberal starting Monday night at Brent Gould Field in Liberal.
