Fans around the Brazos Valley enjoyed a remarkable Bombers season in 2011 with the team advancing to the TCL Championship Series. First year coach, Curt Dixon, will look to build off of the success from last season to lead the Bombers back to the Championship. Tonight, the Bombers open league play in the Woodlands as they take on the Strykers.

Pineda had a solid season on the mound posting a 5-1 record in 14 starts with a 2.78 era while throwing 81 innings.
