El Dorado Eliminates Hays

Hays got the ball rolling first in the top of the fifth inning when Jason Morriss came out big with a homerun out past left field wall. The Larks were able to keep their lead up into the top of the seventh when Rich Deveraux scored off Andrew Heck's double putting the Larks up 2-0.
But in the bottom of the seventh El Dorado was able to gain some much needed momentum to put them on the board. Chad Carman hit a powerful double allowing Kirk Walker and Matt Giller to score and tie everything up. Carman then went on to steal third, setting him position to score off of Justin Lindsey's grounder. Late in the eighth inning, the Broncos added two more runs to their score and securing the win when Wes Cunningham and Elliot Frey scored off of Chad Carman's single. With this win the El Dorado Broncos advance to the championship round on Saturday.
