Truman’s big inning held up.

Truman’s big inning held up.
Raytown South’s wasn’t big enough.
Ian Barker’s three-run home run in the bottom of the second highlighted a seven-run inning as the Patriots took out Raytown South 11-7 at Robinson School in Raytown.
The Cardinals scored five runs in the top of the seventh, but could not get closer than the four runs.
Jamie Hayes picked up the win, allowing two runs in five innings, striking out five. However, the Patriots (14-4) overcame six errors to pick up the win.
“Hayes pitched well for five innings,” Truman coach John Eglich said. “Our defense needs to get better if we’re going to win games down the road.”
Mitch Kilpatrick had two singles, an RBI and a stolen base for Truman. Marcus Douglas and Joe Samuels each had a pair of hits for Raytown South (5-9).
LIBERTY 2, BLUE SPRINGS 0: The key hit never came for Blue Springs Tuesday in a Suburban Big Seven road loss.
Greg Wisner and Dan McGonigle each had two hits, but the Wildcats (8-7, 3-2 Big Seven) could not push a run over the plate.
“We didn’t get the key hit when we needed or the key defensive play,” Wildcats coach Marc Hines said.
Both Liberty runs came after the Wildcats retired the first two batters of the inning.
LEE’S SUMMIT NORTH 6, RAYTOWN 3: Late runs propelled Lee’s Summit North to a win at CommunityAmerica Ballpark in Kansas City, Kan.
The Broncos scored two in the fifth and four in the sixth to earn the non-conference win.
Dustin Ulrich had a pair of hits and drove in three hits for the Broncos (14-2). Ulrich also picked up the win in relief, giving up only one run.
“It was a nice job by Dustin Ulrich on the mound and at the plate,” Broncos coach Jeff Diekmann said. “His triple in the fifth was actually our first hit.”
Nick Doughty drove in a pair of runs for the Blue Jays, while Cody Robinson also added an RBI.
