Bryan/College Station, TX – August 4, 2018 – The Bombers were unable to end the home portion of the regular season on a high note as they fell to Acadiana 4-3. The Bombers were able to set the single season TCL steals record tonight as a positive note for the team to focus on heading to a pivotal road series against Victoria to determine who will have home field advantage in the TCL playoffs.
The Bombers did jump out to an early lead in the second as Dylan Bohnert drove in Alex Nielsen to give the Bombers the early 1-0 lead. The Cane Cutters did answer back in the 3rd inning to tie the score. The visitors then took the lead in the 4th inning after a two run home run made the score 3-1.
The Bombers would respond in the bottom half of the inning, scoring one run on a Zach Iverson double to narrow the margin to 3-2. The Bombers again chipped away at lead, scoring the tying run on a DJ Petrinsky sacrifice fly in the 5th inning, knotting the score at 3 apiece. Unfortunately, the Cane Cutters struck again in the 7th inning, as they took a 4-3 lead they would not relinquish.
