  • The Broncos losing streak is over after 7 consecutive defeats.
    Matt Robertson sparkled on the mound, and Chris Godinez returned to the lineup to help El Dorado defeat the Kansas Cannons 5-2, snapping a seven-game losing streak.
    Robertson went eight innings, allowing one earned run and striking out seven. Bidding to become the first Bronco pitcher to throw a complete game this season, Robertson ran into trouble in the ninth. After an error, Scott Sammons homered over the right-field wall to end the shutout.
    Brian Kowal relieved and earned his first save.
    Godinez, who has been sidelined for two weeks with a hand injury, returned to reach base three times in four at-bats with two walks and a double.
    Mitch Osburn also reached base three of four times with a hit-by-pitch, a walk and a single.
    The Broncos scored thrice in the seventh as David Harris hit a two-run homer and Godinez' double driving in Mikel Mucha, who had reached on an error. The Broncos play host to Jayhawk-leading Dodge City tonight in the first of a three-game series.
