  • WICHITA—Four El Dorado pitchers held San Diego to two runs and eight hits as the Broncos won the NBC Super Regional title by beating the Force 6-2 Wednesday at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium.
    The victory earns a spot for the Broncos in the NBC World Series. El Dorado will play Nevada, Mo., on Friday night.
    Chance Cotton went the first 5 2/3 innings, allowing five hits and two runs. Eric Schuermann went the next 2 1/3, allowing one hit and no runs. Alex Posey and Derek went the final two innings, each allowing one hit and no runs.
    The Broncos struck early, scoring two runs in each of the first two innings. In the first, Thomas Clay and Tyler Ware singled. Clay came home on Clayton Taylor's single, and Ware scored on Wade Stramp's two-out single.
    In the second, Mikel Mucha and John Coen hit consecutive singles. Christian Cox drove in Mucha with a single, and Coen scored on an infield groundout by Clay.
    The Broncos did not score again until the eighth when Taylor was hit by a pitch. He scored on Jason McMurray's single.
    In the ninth, Ware singled and scored on Taylor's double.
    The Broncos played errorlessly for the third game of their four tourney games.
