Bryan/College Station, TX - The Brazos Valley Bombers dropped a hard-fought extra-innings context against the Lake Charles Gumbeaux Gators 3-2 on BTU Customer Appreciation Night at Edible Field.

Bomber fans were treated to a pitcher's duel as Bomber starter Cameron Edmonds and Lake Charles righty Colby Morse tossed shutouts through four innings. In the top of the fifth, it was eventually Lake Charles who broke through on an RBI groundout from Will Franklin to put Lake Charles up 1-0.

The Gumbeaux Gators would add on in the top of the sixth as Aaron Morgan scored on a passed ball from Edmonds to make the score 2-0.

In the bottom of the seventh, the Bombers would get on the board thanks to a sacrifice fly from Grant Watkins to make it 2-1.
