The Brazos Valley Bombers started the second half of the Texas Collegiate League season Friday with a doubleheader split on the road against the Texas Marshals. The Bombers won the first game 6 to 2 but dropped the nightcap game 5 to 1. The Bombers then traveled to Victoria and beat the Generals on Saturday 11 to 2 and 13 to 8 last night. The Bombers are off until Thursday because of the TCL All Star Game tomorrow night in Kilgore.
And, the Houston Astros dropped two of three at the Texas Rangers this weekend. The Rangers won the Friday night game 10 to 5, the Astros rebounded for a 9 to 5 win on Saturday, but the Rangers took the rubber game yesterday 5 to 4. The Astros are off tonight while the Rangers are in Baltimore to begin a four game series against the Orioles.
