Bombers Jackson's Home Run Powers Bombers to Victory on Agriculture Night
Bryan-College Station, TX - After a grueling four game road trip, the Brazos Valley Bombers were back in action Saturday night at Cellucor Field for the first game of a two-game homestand against the Woodlands Strykers. Saturday night was Agricultural Night, sponsored by Molly Maids, featuring a petting zoo at the ballpark; as well as Kids Free Saturday, with free admission for children 13 and under, thanks to Chicken Express.
The Bombers scored a run in the 2nd inning and two more in the 3rd to take an early 3-0 lead that they would not relinquish. TCL All-Star Geonte Jackson hit a two-run home run in the 6th inning to put an exclamation point on the night for the boys in Navy Blue and Vegas Gold.
Mike Walker got the start on the mound for the Bombers and he pitched six strong innings, only allowing one run on three hits and striking out six Strykers. His record improves to 3-1 on the season.
Following the victory on Saturday night, the Bombers' record now stands at 34-8 overall and 15-4 in the second half. The Bombers are now tied for the second-half lead with the Victoria Generals.
The homestand will conclude on Sunday night with International Millionaire Night. One lucky fan will leave the game on Sunday night with $1 million in foreign currency and the Bombers will be wearing special international-themes uniforms, sponsored by Batteries + Bulbs. Sunday will also be Seniors Free Sunday with Baseball Bingo, thanks to Brazos Bingo.
