HAYS – The Hays Larks were down 4-0 before they even came to bat Tuesday night and were unable to dig out of the early hole and lost 5-4 to the Gameday Saints at Larks Parks.

The Saints (14-12, 10-9 RMBL) took advantage of three straight walked then a double and a single, all with two outs, to score four off Kade Brown in the top of the first.

Brown (3-1) allowed the four runs on two hits with three walks and five strikeouts over two innings.

Zach Henry hit a two-run homer in the sixth and Dylan Dreiling added a pinch-hit, two-run single in the eighth to pull the Larks (28-6, 15-4 RMBL) within a run but they were retired in order in the ninth to end the comeback bid.

The Larks close out their regular season Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. at Larks Park.
