The Junction City Brigade scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to break open a tie game enroute to a 6-3 win over the Liberty Monarchs at Rathert Field. The win left Junction City with a 20-4 season record while Liberty fell to 6-17.
The eighth inning for the Brigade began with a double by Carson Sader and included a single by Dylan Thurber who was pinch hitting along with three other baserunners who reached base through an error by the defense, fielder’s choice, or after being hit by a pitch. Drew Repp came on to pitch two innings in relief for Junction City to help seal the victory.
The two teams rematch at 6 p.m. Tuesday in Liberty, Missouri.
