Brooks 3 at Lethbridge 4
The Lethbridge Bulls improved their record to 3-8 with a 4-3 win over the visiting Brooks Bombers. With the loss, the Bombers dropped to 4-7.

With the score tied in the bottom of the eighth inning the Bulls Kaleb Warden scored the winning run on Nick Ankermann’s sacrifice fly to center fielder.

Warden also had two hits and 2 RBI on the night.

Riley MacDonald was an offensive machine for the Brooks Bombers as he had two of his team’s six hits. MacDonald had a double and hit his sixth home run of the season. He now has 20 RBI on the season.

Jack Caswell, who took over for Bomber starter Brandon Hillier to start the eighth inning, took the loss. Bulls reliever Derrick Talon picked up the win and Chris Stodolka earned the save.
