The Bombers opened the season’s second half with a display of dominance on Thursday night, crushing the Waterloo Bucks 10-4 at C.O. Brown Stadium, one night removed from clinching their first-ever playoff appearance. The win is the Bombers third straight.

Battle Creek scored first, recording a pair of runs in the third when Brendan Norton hit an inside-the-park homerun to right field, bringing Matt Hitt along for the ride. The Bombers struck again in the fifth when Bryce Redeker burst free of his slump, scoring two on a double (he picked up an additional RBI with a single late in the game). Battle Creek piled on in the seventh and eighth innings, scoring six collective insurance runs in the process.

Nick Frey made his second start and threw a gem: five innings, three hits, and just one run while striking four and not allowing a single walk. John Morrision was impressive in his two and one-thirds innings, while Scott Mariner finished the job.

The two-gamer concludes Friday night in Battle Creek at 7:05pm.
