The Bloomington Bandits lose a tough fought battle to the Bandits of Eagan. After holding leads of 2-0 and 4-2 Bloomington can't hold on and gives up a few to go down 6-4 after the top of the 9th. Starter: T.J. Post, a few Ks and some other stuff, In relief: Cliff Christopherson, Highlights: Aaron Hoese triple, Dusty Walker makes one Swedish Fish last for the entire top of the 7th, Scott Davis jumps on water bottle and drenches Kyle Bassamore, Christopherson sets all time Bandit record for laps around the mound after a questionable call.
After a tough loss to a very solid Eagan squad, the Bandits are forced to shake off the first defeat of the season and turn around to play the class "B" runner up finisher, Burnsville Bobcats on Thursday May 30th. Nick Cobb will get the ball and be asked to contain a deep lineup while the Bandit offense will surely be challenged by the Bobcat pitching staff.
