THUNDER BAY- In a series of events Thursday night, the Waterloo Bucks broke the 3-3 tie in the top of the 9th inning, scoring on a wild pitch, and topping the Thunder Bay Border Cats, 4-3.  While pitcher Zach Cooper pitched a flawless one and a half innings to save the game.


The Bucks steadily put runs on the board during Thursday night’s match-up, being ahead of the Border Cats 3-0 in the eighth inning.  But the Border Cats didn’t give up without a fight, scoring three in the bottom of the eighth to tie up the game.  Cooper was sent to the mound and shut-down the Border Cats for the remainder of the game, earning the win and the save.


Outfielder Phil Keppler hit his second home run of the week and third of the season to aid the Bucks in the win.  Outfielder Willie Argo used his speed to score two for the night, while first baseman Christian Griffiths had one run batted in.  Zach McCool and Josh Lyon each had three hits a piece during the game.


The Bucks stay in Thunder Bay Friday night for a 6:05 match-up.  They travel to Duluth Saturday, and return home July 25 to face the Madison Mallards.
