2020 Texas Collegiate League Champions – Brazos Valley Bombers
On August 8, the Brazos Valley Bombers won the 2020 TCL championship. Here is a recap from the Bombers’ website (click here for photos and more information on the 2020 TCL championship series):
Bryan / College Station, TX (August 8, 2020) – The Brazos Valley Bombers defeated the Tulsa Drillers 13-2 tonight to win their third-straight Texas Collegiate League title. This is the seventh time in eight-years that the title will be returning to the Brazos Valley.
The Bombers went down 1-0 in the top of the second following a wild pitch, but the deficit didn’t last long as they exploded for six runs in the bottom of the inning. Logan Sartori started the scoring for the home side after crossing the plate off a wild pitch. Bryce Blaum was then hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to send home Mikey Hoehner. Kelby Weyler and Austin Bost scored on the same wild pitch before Wesley Faison earned yet another bases-loaded walk. Manny Garcia reached on an E3 to knock in Grayson Tatrow to cap off the six-run inning. The Bombers walked-in three more runs in the third along with an RBI single from Faison to extend the lead to nine. Bost sent a solo shot over the left-field wall in the fourth before his fellow Aggie, Logan Sartori, sent one to the same spot in the seventh to bump the lead to double digits.
