On Saturday night, the Hays Larks hit four homers, but committed four errors and lost, 6-5, to the Wellington Heat at Larks Park.

On Sunday, the Larks dropped back-to-back league game games for the first time this season with a 4-1 home loss to Wellington.

The three-game series will conclude tonight with a single game at Larks Park.

On Saturday, Jake Placzek, Brett Lang and Cody Daily (twice) all homered. For Lang, it marked a three-hit night after he struggled early in the season. Lang had hurt his quad late in the spring collegiate year and had missed the first part of the summer in his second year with the Larks.

Wellington scored three runs in the first inning, two in the seventh and one in the eighth. Jason Zgardowski worked seven innings and allowed nine hits, five runs (two earned) with two strikeouts and three walks in the loss.

In the top of the seventh, Wellington opened the inning with two bunt singles. On the first one, third baseman Ty Gilmore threw errant to first base.

After the bunts, the Heat collected a sac fly and two singles.

"We just didn't have a good night," Larks manager Frank Leo said. "Yeah, we hit some home runs, but the bottom line is, you have to put more runs than them on the board. We just didn't have a crisp game."

In the ninth inning, the Larks nearly came back when Lang legged out an infield single with two outs and then Daily crushed a first pitch homer to left-center field.

However, Desmond Roberts ended the game with a groundout.

Wellington manager Rick Twyman, though, was well aware of the Larks magic that has happened over the years.

"No lead is safe," he said.

On Sunday, Chandler Hawkins worked eight innings and allowed three runs on seven hits with five strikeouts and a walk.

The Larks had one run on five innings, while Wellington had four runs on 10 hits.

Hays stands at 19-5, 13-5, while Wellington is 15-9, 11-9.

No one on the Larks had more than one hit. Placzek collected a double. Hays still remains comfortably in first place in the Jayhawk League.
