The Redskins ended a five-game losing streak with authority Tuesday, sweeping a double header against Great Bend that kept the Redskins alive for the Western Athletic Conference title.

After struggling to score in the last five games, the Redskin bats came to life Tuesday, belting out a combined 33 hits, and the Liberal pitching staff only allowed seven.

Cole Evans took the mound for the Redskins in the opener and pitched four shutout innings before allowing a single run in the fifth.

Evans helped his cause at the plate in the first inning delivering an RBI single for a 1-0 lead.

Liberal added three more runs in the second on an RBI single by Cade Hinkle, a triple by Burciaga and a balk by the Great Bend pitcher that allowed Burciaga to score from third.

Liberal jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the third with an RBI triple by Francisco Terrazas that scored Kaleb Wilmes, and Alex Carrillo hit a two RBI single that scored Elijah McCarter and Hinkle.

Terrazas was hit by a pitch in the fourth with the bases loaded, allowing Jett Brown to score and the Redskins took an 8-0 lead. The Redskins had a chance to end the game by run rule, but the Panthers avoided it with two pop outs with the bases loaded.

The Panthers finally scored in the fifth, and Evans reached the pitch limit after recording the final out of the inning.

Thad Deaton pitched a scoreless sixth, and Liberal added the necessary runs to win by run rule after six, 11-1.

Evans added to his home run record in the nightcap and was a single away from hitting for the cycle to lead Liberal to a 14-2 run-rule win.

Evans had six RBIs in the win.

Wilmes earned the win, pitching three innings and allowing two runs on two hits with a strikeout and no walks.

Liberal moved to 11-5 with the wins and will end the regular season Thursday with a double header at Hays. If the Redskins can win both, they will share the Western Athletic Conference title with Dodge City.
