Broken Bow American Legion Juniors and Seniors Pick Up Wins Against Cozad

The Broken Bow American Legion juniors and seniors baseball teams traveled to Cozad for a doubleheader Tuesday night.  The Bow juniors offense carried them to their 7th win of the season.  It was an active first inning as Broken Bow scored 5 runs in the first and Cozad responded with 4.  Bow would score more, Cozad would not.  Broken Bow scored 8 runs in the second and 8 more in the third to end the game in three innings by a final of 21-4.  Eli Coble helped lead the Bow attack going 3 for 4 with 4 runs scored and 2 runs batted in.  Max Denson finished 2 for 3 with 3 runs scored and 1 RBI.  Jacob Heapy was 1 for 1 driving in three.  The Bow juniors are still undefeated improving to 7-0.

The seniors game turned into a wild nail biting affair.  The game was tied 1-1 after four innings but then both offenses got cranked up.  Broken Bow would erupt for 7 runs in the fifth inning with Cozad responding with four runs in the fifth.  Broken Bow scored one more run in the sixth but Cozad scored 3 to pull to within a run.  Neither team would be able to plate a run in the seventh as Broken Bow held on for a 9-8 win.  Keifer Anderson was 2 for 3 with 2 RBI and a run scored.  Max Denson and Carter Johnson also had multi hit games for the Bow seniors who won their fourth in a row to improve to 5-5 on the season.

Broken Bow will next host McCook for a juniors and seniors doubleheader at Paul Brown Field on Friday night.
