Kenosha, Wisc. – Battle Creek (10-5) got a taste of their own medicine last night, as the Kenosha Kingfish (10-5) came back to defeat Bombers 4-2 in Kenosha.

Normally the team who battle back from deficits themselves, the Bombers (10-5) couldn't hang on to their 2-1 lead. Battle Creek faced a 1-0 drought in the first inning, but took the lead in the fourth thanks to Logan Kaletha's (Indiana University) two RBI double to left center, which made it 2-1. Kaletha scored Nick Walker (Austin Peay) who had his second multi-hit game in a row, and Cody Hawken (University of Portland).

Battle Creek starter Trent Johnson (Tulane University) was cruising through the game despite one run let up. In the sixth, Kenosha had runners on second and third. Johnson was told to intentionall walk a Kingfish batter, but his pitch went over the head of Aaron Antonini (Middle Tennessee State) and scored the tying run from third.

Battle Creek in the seventh got two runners on. Kaletha reached on an error on the shortstop, and Tom Stoffel (Virginia Tech) was intentionally walked. Both runners were stranded on base. The Bombers swapped pitchers to Taylor Horn (Wright State) in the seventh. Kenosha, who Horn started against last week, continued to have his number. Off three hits the Kingfish scored two runs to make it a 4-2 lead.

The Bombers next six batters were retired to end the game. Now Kenosha and Battle Creek are tied for second place in the South Division standings, and will face off again tomorrow (June 14) at 8:05 ET at Simmons Field. Voices of the Bombers Neil Doyle and Jake Hromada will be on the call starting at 7:55 ET.
