Bombers Win First Playoff Game

Bryan-College Station, TX (August 10, 2010) – The Brazos Valley Bombers came from behind twice to defeat the East Texas Pump Jacks 7-5 Tuesday night. The win on Derby Dash Night presented by Montelongo’s Fine Jewelry gives the Bombers a 1-0 lead in the best of three series against the Pump Jacks.

Before the game Bombers fans rushed the field to grab one of many large stars as part of the Montelongo’s Fine Jewelry Derby Dash. Twelve lucky ladies received a Bombers Blue Topaz and one received a Half- Carat Diamond.

The Pump Jacks got an early lead, scoring two in the top of the first and one more in the third to earn a 3-0 lead. In the fifth, Jacob House led off with a triple followed by a Greg Olson walk. A Brennyn Smith single plated house, giving the Bombers their first run of the game. After a Cameron Dullnig RBI sacrifice fly, John Cannon doubled to tie the score at 3-3.

In the seventh the Pump Jacks regained the lead, scoring two to make the score 5-3. In the bottom of the same inning, after an Olson leadoff walk, Smith belted a moon shot home run over the left field fence, tying the score back up at 5-5. The Bombers weren’t done though as Morgan Mickan scored Dullnig on a single and then he scored on a wild pitch three batters later to give the Bombers the 7-5 lead.

Nick Fleece came on in the ninth to close things out but quickly found himself with no outs and runners on the corners. Jacob House caught a line drive at first and stepped on the bag for a double play then Isaac Nuti fielded a ground ball and tossed to first to get the last out, sealing the win.

The Bombers will return to action tomorrow night in Kilgore against the same Pump Jacks at 7:05p.m. Should the Bombers advance to the next round their schedule would be determined by the series between the Texas Tomcats and the Victoria Generals. If the Tomcats win Game 1 would be in Weimar Friday with Games 2 and 3 (if necessary) in Bryan. If the Generals win, Game 1 would be at Brazos Valley Bank Ballpark on Fireworks Friday with Game 2 and 3 (if necessary) in Victoria. Currently the Generals lead the Tomcats 1-0.
