Fewer than 10 home games remain in the Brooks Bombers Western Baseball League schedule for the season but there is a lot of time left for fans and spectators to get loud and show their support.
As of Sunday’s loss against the Sylvan Lake Gulls, 17-2, the Bombers were 10-24 after 34 games in ninth place ahead of the Swift Current 57s, Edmonton Prospects and Weyburn Beavers.
On Sunday the Gulls were leading the Bombers 11-2 with a pair of runs in both the first and fourth innings, three runs in the sixth and eights, one in the seventh but it was in the ninth when the Gulls had five earned and one unearned run.
The Bombers had singles in the first and fifth and no runs home in the final inning.
Although it was a lopesided score, the Bombers had their own success the previous night with an impressive 19-5 defeat of the league’s forth place (21-14) Lethbridge Bulls.
The Bombers had 10 runs in the first inning, including a late inning home run by Jacob Gillis and six runs in the fourth inning. Their additional were two in the third and one in the sixth.
This week the Bombers were back at the field on Monday against Swift Current, Tuesday against Okotoks Dawgs and on Sunday join the team for an afternoon game at 2:05 when they will again host Okotoks.
