  • The Dodge City Conquistadors recorded a split of a Tuesday road doubleheader against the Northern Oklahoma-Enid Jets.
    The Conqs lost the first game 6-1 before coming back to win the nightcap 7-5 in 11 innings.
    Dodge City opened up the scoring in the top of the first in the nightcap when Conner Koepp reached base on one error and scored on a second Jets' error in the inning. Enid got a run in the bottom of the inning on a RBI sacrifice fly by Korbin Polston.
    Koepp was also responsible for the Conqs' second run with a RBI single with the bases loaded in the top of the second; while the Jets scored two in the bottom of the third on a RBI fielders' choice by Chase Knott, followed by a RBI single by Postiak.
    Haden Houska put Dodge City up 4-3 in the top of the fourth with a two-run home run, but Enid came right back with a home run of their own by Haden Johnson to tie the game at 4-4.
    The Conqs (21-13) made the score 5-4 in the top of the fifth on a RBI groundout by Julian Moroyoqui; but the Jets answered again in the bottom of the sixth on a RBI single by Dyce Applegate to send the game into extra innings.
    Neither team scored until the top of the 11th when Jarren Donato was able to induce a bases-loaded walk and Koepp scored on a passed ball.
    Both teams scored a run in the first inning of the opener as well: Dodge City got on the board in the top of the frame with a RBI triple by Parker Jones; while Enid came back in the bottom of the inning with a RBI groundout by Knott.
    The score stayed the same until the bottom of the fifth when the Jets added two more runs. Aaron McCandless hit a RBI double after a Conq error allowed the first score of the inning cross the plate. Enid closed out the scoring with three more runs in the sixth (two on another Dodge City error and a RBI single by Colgan).
    Chase Wilson was the losing pitcher for the Conqs. He threw 4 1/3 innings, giving up four hits and three runs (two earned). He struck out five and walked one during his time on the mound. Zach Postoak threw a seven-inning complete game for the Jets. Postoak gave up three hits, four walks and an earned run, striking out one on the day to get the decision.
    The Conqs return to action Friday afternoon at Concordia with the first doubleheader of a Jayhawk League series against Cloud County, with the second doubleheader scheduled for Saturday.
