Liberal fell to third in the Jayhawk standings following a 5-3 loss Wednesday night  at Panther Park in Derby.
The Bee Jays jumped out to an early 3-0 lead in the second. After scoring three, Liberal still had the bases loaded with no outs, but were unable to plate another run. Liberal stranded 11 runners on the night.
In the fourth Derby had two runners cross the plate, both unearned to make it 3-2 in Liberal’s favor.
In the fifth, Liberal errors allowed Derby to take the lead 5-3. Only one run in the inning was earned.
Liberal’s three runs came from RBI singles by Micah Green, Greg McCall, and Ross Kivett.
Josh Smith got the start and allowed five runs, only one earned, in four-and-two-thirds innings of work. Smith struck out six before Robbie Ingram came in relief and threw two-and-a-third before Richard Olson came in in the eighth.
Liberal fell to 24-12 and 14-11 in Jayhawk play behind Hays and Haysville.
Liberal will play Derby for the last of the three game series in Derby at 7 p.m. tonight.
