Dodge City will face Kansas City Kansas Community
Missed opportunities were the theme Friday night as the Dodge City Community College baseball team left 12 potential runs on the basepaths in their 7-4 loss versus No. 14 Johnson County in the opening round NJCAA Region VI Central District Tournament at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium in Wichita.
"We could not get the big hit we needed tonight as we loaded the bases three different times and got only one run out of it tonight" head coach Phil Stephenson said in a press release. "We handled what we got out of both of their pitchers, but we had too many strikeouts tonight."
With the loss, the Conquistadors move to the losers bracket and will face Kansas City Kansas Community College today at 1 p.m. The Blue Devils are coming off of a 7-1 loss versus No. 3 Hutchinson. A win will pit Dodge City against the loser of Neosho County and Cowley on Sunday at 10 a.m. and a loss will eliminate the Conquistadors and end their season.
