  • El Dorado went 24 innings without an error. Then, the Broncos made two on one play and cost them a 3-2 14-inning loss to Wellington on Wednesday night at McDonald Stadium.
    Wellington's Dalton Bernardi hit a single to left field that went through Thomas Clay for error No. 1.
    Clay threw to ball to shortstop John Coen who had a good shot at getting Bernardi at third.
    Coen threw wildly and it wound up in the El Dorado duggout, allowing Bernardi to stroll home with what proved to be the game-winner. The run wound up being unearned.
    El Dorado wiped out a 2-0 deficit in the sixth when Tyler Ware hit a two-run homer.
    Even the homer had a sour note for the Broncos. Clay had led off the inning with a single. He was picked off first, appearing to get his hand on the bag before the tag.
    Broncos manager Chad Gerwick argued but to no avail. Trever Ezell followed with a single.
    Ware's homer was a two-run blast not a three-run blast which would have allowed the Broncos to win in nine innings.
    El Dorado, which has lost four in a row, will play host to Liberal on Friday at McDonald Stadium in a three-game series.
