Copperheads Bite Bombers on Monday Feast

Box >

Brazos Valley Bank Ballpark was busy with excitement tonight as over 1300 fans came for $0.50 hot dogs, popcorn and soft drinks on Monday Feast night, but the Bombers came away with a bitter taste in their mouths after a 9-3 defeat to the Coppell Copperheads.

The game was closely contested for the first eight innings, as neither team seemed willing to budge. The Bombers trailed 3-1 heading to the fifth inning, but scored two runs as Clifton Thomas singled home Robby Graham and then scored all the way from second base on Wes Schill’s groundout to first base. Thomas caught Coppell’s first baseman Tim Emmons napping on the play and broke for home, beating the throw to tie the game at 3-3.

The Bombers threatened to score in the bottom of the eighth inning, as Wes Schill doubled with only one out, but he was left stranded as Joe Craven and Brett Parsons were unable to knock him in. Clifton Thomas, who led the inning off with a single, was picked off first base for the first out of the inning.

The Copperheads were able to put six runs across the plate in the top of the ninth inning, as Garrett Fanchier struggled, giving up three hits and three walks. The Bombers made a valiant comeback effort in the bottom half of the ninth, as they loaded the bases with one out, but John Cannon hit into a double play to end the game.

The Bombers will be on the road tomorrow to face East Texas in an important battle for position in the Texas Collegiate League standings. The Pump Jacks are a game ahead of the Bombers, but a series sweep would put the Bombers back into second place.
