Generals Score Early But Fall to Bombers, 3-2

Posted: Updated:

Following their 9-4 victory over the Twins on Saturday night, the Generals returned to Victoria Sunday just a half game back of the Bombers for first place in the TCL with two games against Brazos Valley left to play in the regular season. Alex Canul got the start for the Generals Sunday in a game that ended up as a pitcher's duel, with the Generals falling 3-2.

The Generals put across a couple runs early after Thomas Jeffries led off the game with a triple, and Michael Williams walked. Marshall Skinner ripped a double into the gap to score Jeffries before an error by Bombers pitcher Zach Iverson allowed a second run to score. That would be all they could muster, however, as Iverson shut the Generals down for four innings after that, before giving way to a dominant bullpen effort. The Generals were held hitless for the remainder of the contest after the first inning. 

Canul was very sharp himself, giving up just one hit, a two-run triple that tied the game in the 5th. The Bombers scored again in the 8th off Kasey Kalich to take a 3-2 lead, which was all the offense they would need. The run was the only one Kalich would surrender in four inning of relief.

Despite the loss, the importance of making a deep postseason run wasn't lost on the Generals, who open up the TCL postseason with a single-elimination game at Riverside on Wednesday.

"We didn't just come here to play summer ball and have fun," infielder Anthony Jones told Don Brubaker. "It's big for us to win, we really want to come out here and have our summer actually mean something, get a ring out of it."

First pitch for that Championship Series play-in game is scheduled for 7:05 pm.
