Bombers Win Second Half of Double Header

Bryan- College Station, TX (June 29, 2016) – Brazos Valley Bombers split the doubleheader with the Texas Marshalls to bring their record to 17-5 and remain in first place by half of a game over the Cane Cutters. Bombers lose 2-1 in the first game, and win the second by the same score.

Bombers took a tough loss in the first game when the rally fell short in the bottom of the seventh inning. Anthony Herrera drove in the only run of the game with an RBI sacrifice fly to right field.

Tonight’s double-header was a Winter Wonderland theme sponsored by Maroon Maids. During intermission on our Wing Wednesday, brought to you by Smitty K’s Sports Bar and Grill, Nutrabolt Stadium hosted a special performance by Mini Elvis.

The second game started off slow until a sacrifice fly in the third inning from Alex Samples drove in the first run of the game bringing in John Grimsley. The score stayed that way until the bottom of the seventh inning as Garrett Hofstad threw six innings, allowing no runs and striking out ten batters. Anthony Herrera replaced Hofstad in order to secure the win. Marshalls were able to earn a run across with a two out RBI by B.J. Findley. After two innings of overtime, John Grimsley ended the game with a walk off single up the middle running Herrera in for the win.

Come out for our next home game, July 4th, Military Monday sponsored by the Barracks Townhomes. Join the Bombers as we honor all military and face the Victoria Generals at Nutrabolt Stadium starting at 1:05pm.
