Bombers Look to Close Out June With a Win
 
The Bombers traveled to central Louisiana tonight to take on the Alexandria Aces as they close out the month of June. The Bombers got a great performance on the mound from Damien Rivera, but in the end could not come up with a win.
 
After being hitless from the beginning of the game, third baseman, Brennyn Smith broke that up with a single to leftfield. The next batter, shortstop Nick Smelser was hit by a pitch and walked down to first. Catcher Kevin Lamb then came up and laid down a bunt that advanced Smith to third and Smelser to second. Second baseman Corey Toups then came up a lined a single back up the middle that scored Smith. Lead off hitter Myles Parma then stepped to the plate and hit a sacfly to center that scored Smelser. The Bombers would score one run in the top of the eighth inning. Center fielder Quinton Urban came to the plate and beat out a bunt. Urban would eventually come home on a sac fly by designated hitter James Wharton. 
 
Damien Rivera was on the mound for the Bombers. He had a great outing Throwing seven innings and striking out four Aces. Rivera was relieved by Nick Johnson with the bases loaded in the eighth inning. Johnson was able to get out of the eighth. With Johnson on the mound in the ninth, the Aces found some magic as they won the game on an RBI triple. 
 
The defense made two exceptional plays in the game. Early in the game, Rivera picked of an Aces runner at first. Rivera threw the ball to first baseman Brad Porras who relayed it to Smelser who chased the runner down to apply the tag. The other play came in the bottom of the seventh inning. Left fielder Brandon Wood caught a ball off the left field wall and fired to second baseman Corey Toups who tagged the runner out.
