Eventually the Twins outlasted the Bombers in 11 innings with a final score of 5-6.
The Bombers wasted no time tonight getting on the board as Kyle Bergeron sent one over the fence for a two run home-run to give the Bombers an early two to one lead. Logan Sartori tacted on another run with a line drive double to bring in Hunter Coleman for a Bomber 3-1 lead after the first. Sartori would later come up in the bottom of the third grounding out, but not before bringing in Bergeron for a Bombers 4-3 lead heading into the 4h inning.
The game would tie at five in the 7th inning before each team had to really rely on their bullpen to carry the remainder of the game. It remained scoreless until the 11th where back to back singles set up Hudson Hopkins who would ground out into a fielder’s choice to score the sixth run for the Twins. The Bombers got a single from Sartori to represent the tying run, but were unable to bring him in as they fell in the 11th.
