Jared Flores started for the Lions and looked sharp, going six innings and allowing just one earned run. Logan VanWey threw two innings, while Joey Reeves and Covington combined to close out the ninth. Covington got a save, his fourth of the year, while Flores moved to 4-2 on the season. 

The series finale between the two teams will most likely be played on Saturday as weather in both Joplin and Topeka will make a game unplayable tomorrow. Stay tuned to www.mssulions.com for that location and time of the series finale.
