HUTCHINSON — No one knew at the time, but when Hutchinson Monarch starter Nathan Adler worked out of a bases-loaded no-out jam, the Monarchs were on their way to a third consecutive baseball victory over the Great Bend Bat Cats 7-3 Wednesday .

Great Bend’s Kyle Gates doubled home Alex Rodgers and Riley Silva for a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Colter Maldanado was hit by a pitch, loading the bases with no out. Wichita State pitcher Adler rallied to retire Si Schumacher and struck out Dawson French and Dre Amaral to leave the bases loaded.

Rodgers drilled a second-inning homer for a 3-0 lead. But the Bat Cats’ offense went silent the next seven innings with three harmless singles.

Bat Cats ace pitcher Ian Lanik (4-1) yielded a pair of home runs that cost him six runs. Four Monarch runners scored after drawing walks.

Monarch Sawyre Thornhill ripped a grand slam homer after second-inning walks to Nixon Brannan, Will Stark and Lane Brewster. Brannan drilled a 2-run homer after a Jon Jenkins double for a 6-3 lead after three innings. Brewster scored on Joey Baran’s sixth-inning single for a 7-3 final.

The top four Bat Cat batters delivered 6-for-15 at the plate with three runs scored and three RBIs. Rodgers stole two bases as the Bat Cats stole four bases. The Bat Cats’ bottom of the order continues to struggle with 2-of-15 hitting Wednesday.

Hutchinson (15-5) ties the Bat Cats (19-6, 15-5) for the second place in the Sunflower Collegiate League. The Bat Cats play the Kingman Islanders at home Thursday and Saturday.
