SOMBA Tiger Nick Bravi slides face-first into third

After losing to the Kamloops Riverdogs 2-1 and 13-5 in Penticton, the SOMBA Tigers improved slightly on the road.

Game three at the Canada Games field in Kamloops was better for the Tigers who won 13-8. Brett Fleming, who lasted just one inning in game two, last four innings and allowed just two hits. While he walked nine batters, it didn’t hurt Fleming who received run support from his teammates. Raphael Jackson had a strong showing on the mound as he settled in nicely in relief with three strikeouts in as many innings of action.

In the fourth and final game, its looked as though play would continue for the Tigers from the previous game. The Tigers scored twice in the opening inning while stranding two runners. Nolan Benedetti pitched one inning and walked the first three batters and gave two runs back. The Tigers didn`t let the momentum shift and went out and scored two more in the second. The Tigers went on to lose 11-6. A strong effort by Eric Maurer may put him in the pitching rotation.

This weekend the Tigers host the Ridge Meadows Royals at McNicoll Park on Saturday at noon and 2:30 p.m. The Royals sit second in the midget AAA standings winning five of six games, while the Tigers are third from the bottom winning two of six.
