Frederick Bomber baseball team closes second week with 2-1 record

The Bombers got a slow start to the season facing two fall baseball teams.

Frederick’s second week of action began with a trip north to Fletcher to face the No. 8 ranked Wildcats. The game showed promise when the Bombers scored one run in the first inning as Gustavo Gaytan was batted in by Dylan Sheffield.

But that run proved to be the only run the Bombers mustered that day, as the howling 20 mph wind caused havoc in the outfield and the infield.

The Bombers dropped that game 11-1 after four innings of play.

On March 7, the Bombers hosted a new foe from south of the Red River — the Quanah, Texas Wildcats. The Bombers jumped out on the Wildcats and just as they were about to win the game via a run rule, the Wildcats came charging back and put up four runs in the last inning alone.

The Bombers beat the Wildcats 10-7, getting their first win of the season behind pitching from Travis Ibarra.

On March 9, the Bombers hosted the Snyder Cyclones. Frederick allowed one run in each of the first two innings before the defense settled in and shut down the Snyder offense. Jacob Kelly was on the “bump” for the Cyclones and held off the Bombers in the early innings.

Ibarra took the lead on the mound for the Bombers so far in this young season with a 2-1 record.

The Bomber offense came alive late in the game, mustering four runs late to beat the Cyclones.
