Busters Get 5th Win of The Year; Down Western Nebraska 7-3

Garden City, KS - Connor Burns got the nod in game two of the doubleheader. Burns went three innings giving up two runs, one earned, on five hits. The freshman right-hander struck out four and walked one before handing it off to freshman Noah Foreman. Foreman went three innings to earn his first collegiate win. The freshman did not allow a hit in his relief appearance, but worked around three walks and two hit batters to earn the win.

Rafael Villela got the offense started with a triple in the bottom of the first, and finished the day 2 for 4 with a RBI and two runs scored.  Following the triple by Villela, Mason Brown and Kyle Lopez doubled in back to back at-bats to drive in the first two runs of the game. Jesse Gonzales capped off the scoring in the first inning with a two-out single to left-center field.

Alex Nielsen was 2 for 3 with a double, run scored, and a RBI.

The success of the Broncbusters bullpen continued as they gave up one unearned run in six innings of work.


The Broncbusters move to 5-0 on the season, and finish the four-game set against Western Nebraska on Sunday with a doubleheader starting at 1:00.
