Bombers Look to Next Week's Home Stand for a ChancJune 23, 2012 - Texas Collegiate League (TCL) Brazos Valley Bombers
Damien Rivera pitched a great game for the Bombers in what was another strong night for both starting pitchers. Tonight's starter pitched seven innings giving up six hits and striking out seven. He came on the wrong side though and picked up his first loss of the season. Lefties Andrew Hohn and Franco Pace came in to pitch the final two innings and each picked up one strikeout respectively.
The Bombers offense was held in check until the seventh inning. Leadoff hitter and second baseman Corey Toups hit a single. Left fielder Brandon Wood then was able to reach first on an error by the Pump Jack second baseman. After a passed ball, both runners moved up to 3rd and 2nd. Catcher Braden Mattson scored the first run on a groundout that brought Toups home. Then first baseman James Wharton stroked a pitch over the left field fence that scored Wood and himself to make the score 4-3 Pump Jacks. The offense would be held in check for the remainder of the game. The Bombers managed just four hits during the game.
