EL DORADO -- The Hays Larks stayed perfect with a sweep of El Dorado, 4-1 and 5-2, on Sunday at McDonald Stadium in El Dorado. The teams played two on Sunday after Saturday's game was postponed due to field conditions.

Larks' pitcher Nick Goza (3-0) earned the win in Game 1, going 6.0 innings while giving up five hits, striking out three batters and allowing the lone run. Tyler Kapp recorded his first save of the season, pitching the final inning. He struck out two of the three batters he faced and didn't allow a hit.

Hays trailed El Dorado 1-0 after two innings in Game 1 before a sac-fly by first baseman Nate Olinger scored second baseman Zair Koeiman from third.

The teams remained locked at 1 heading into the seventh. Koeiman broke the tie in the top half with a 3-run home run and Kapp took care of the order in the bottom half to finish the game.

Koeiman, a Wichita State University product, finished 2 for 3 with two runs and three runs-batted-in.

In Game 2, the Larks took a 3-0 lead after two innings, Koeiman's RBI-double getting the first run across. A wild pitch scored designated hitter Cooper Langley for the second run and center fielder Michael Burns singled to score Koeiman for the third run.

El Dorado got a run back in the bottom of the third and another in the bottom of the fifth to make it 3-2 entering the sixth inning. In the top half of the inning, shortstop Ty Lefler homered to extend the lead back to two runs, and Olinger's sac-fly in the top of the seventh brought home the game's final run.

Alex Daniele (1-0) earned the win for the Larks, going 4.2 innings. He allowed two of El Dorado's three hits, struck out five batters and allowed both runs. Ethan Landon earned his second save of the summer, finishing out the final 2.1 innings, allowing one hit, no runs and getting one strike out.

Burns led the offense, going 3 for 4 with one RBI.

With Sunday's sweep, the Larks are now 7-0, 4-0 atop the Jayhawk League. They begin a six-game home stand on Tuesday, played over six-consecutive days, starting with Dodge City at 7 p.m.
