Randy Mann was rewarded for his excellent pitching performance last Wednesday by becoming the third Bombers pitcher to win the TCL Pitcher of the Week award, and the team’s unprecedented fourth consecutive award winner.
Mann’s award comes following his complete game performance against the Alexandria Aces last Wednesday. He allowed just one earned run (two total), and struck out eight in the game, leading the Bombers to a 5-2 victory.
The win was the first in what became a four game winning streak for the Bombers, who are battling with the Victoria Generals for the fourth and final spot in the TCL playoffs.
Since joining the team in July, the lefty has compiled a 1-0 record in six appearances, with a 2.61 earned run average and 11 strikeouts in 20 and two-thirds innings pitched.
Mann joins pitchers Damien Rivera and Alec Mills as Bombers who have been recognized by the league for their performances this season. Trey Porras won the TCL’s Hitter of the Week award for his stellar play in June.
Mann and the rest of the Bombers are slated to return to home to Brazos Valley Bank Ballpark on Wednesday for the final series of the regular season. They’ll be squaring off against the Victoria Generals, with playoff implications at stake. Wednesday is Fan Appreciation Night at the ballpark, where all fans get in FREE thanks to a generous donation by Twin City Properties. The game will be also feature the sixth and final of the Angry Birds Bobblehead giveaways this season, where fans can complete their collection by scooping up the last of the feathered friends. Also to be given away are 300 team photos to commemorate the 2011 Brazos Valley Bombers’ team. Furthermore, fans will be able to purchase $1 margaritas on the night.
