The Bombers put together their second straight comeback win against the Wisconsin Woodchucks in a 6-3 victory to take the series.

Behind by a pair in the third, Bombers All-Star Troy White belted a two-run homer to tie the game, while Jordan Dean helped re-tie the game in the fifth off a sacrifice fly RBI to bring home Brendan Norton. Battle Creek pulled ahead for the first time in the sixth when Danny Rockett singled into centerfield, and they sealed the deal in the eighth when White and Bryce Redeker both scored off Woodchucks pitched Justin Burns, who surrendered four hits in the inning.

John Morrison started in place of Matt Dearden, who was reported sick before the game, and went four and two-thirds innings and allowed three runs, but it was Scott Simmons who was the real story: the Bombers re-signed the lefty as a permanent player two days ago and threw over three innings of scoreless baseball for the win. Alex Tukey closed for Battle Creek and recorded his third save.

The series wraps up Monday night at 7:05 at C.O. Brown Stadium as the Bombers look to sweep the Chucks.
