DODGE CITY -- Left-hander Ian Bentley made his 2014 pitching debut, and the Hays Larks offense did the rest as Hays captured an 11-5 win on the road in Jayhawk League action Wednesday night.

Bentley, who climbed to No. 10 last year on the all-time record list for strikeouts per nine innings pitched, picked up where he left off last summer.

Bentley worked six innings with six strikeouts to one walk, but did give up five runs (two earned) on nine A's hits.

The Larks' offense, though, wouldn't be outdone. Aaron Cornell, Derek Birginske, Ty Leffler and Zair Koeiman all had at least two hits. Koeiman had big production for the second night in a row, driving in four runs.

The Larks trailed 4-2 after three innings, then tied the game in the fifth on a two-run single by Koeiman. Birginske also had a triple in the inning. Then in the sixth, Hays (16-9 overall, 12-9 JL) exploded with five runs to take the lead for good. Ty Detmer doubled in a pair of runs as the Larks scored five runs on five hits, one an RBI single by Koeiman.

Birginske finished 3 for 4 with three runs scored and one driven in. Leffler also was 3 for 4, scoring twice and driving in a run. Cornell was 2 for 5 in the leadoff spot with two runs scored. Detmer finished 1 for 4 with two runs scored and two driven in.

Birginske, Ethan Landon and D.J. Carr combined for three scoreless innings of one-hit ball in relief.

Dodge City dropped to 10-16 overall and 5-16 in league play.

The win was the Larks' fifth in their last six games as they head to Liberal (13-12, 7-12) on Saturday and Sunday for a two-game league set. Both games begin at 7 p.m.
