The L.V. Rogers Bombers baseball team traveled to Spirit Lake, Idaho to play the Timberlake Tigers in a double header earlier this week.
The teams split the games with the Tigers winning 6-4 in game one and the Bombers winning 7-3 in game two.
John Barabonoff took the loss in game one, throwing four solid innings giving up all six runs, five hits, four walks and recording one strike out. Braeden Zarikoff came in and pitched three shutout innings in relief, giving up one hit and striking out two.
The Bombers collected 11 hits, with Zarikoff (four singles), Austin Tambellini (two singles), Daine Olenek (two singles), Reese Tambellini (two singles), and Gun Woo Park (one single) collecting the hits. The team also collected four walks.
In game two, lefty Austin Tambellini carried a no-hitter into the fourth inning, finishing the game with a two-hitter, giving up three unearned runs, striking out nine, and walking one. Offensively the team collected five hits, walked three times, and struck out seven times. Key hits from Daine and Keaton Roch broke a 3-3 tie to put the game away for the Bombers.
The team was helped by three Tiger errors in the game.
