The Broncos took the 1st game of the 3 game series with the Bengals in a 10-6 decision. The offense was lead by Tyson Dellasilva`s 3-4 and Brennan Rooks 2-3 performance. Kjell Holmes had a good day from the bump and Tyson came in to seal the victory in the 7th. Game 2 was a heart breaker as the Broncos had a great effect from Brian Begerow on the mound. Brian sit down 7 Bengals in 6 innings on strikeouts, but the 4 defensive errors behind him allowed ISU to hang around, and they won in the bottom of the 7th by the score of 7-6. Game 3 on Sunday had 28 hits between the two teams, 14 each. 5 Broncos had multi-hit games, Cooper Thomas (2-5), Tyson Dellasilva (3-4), Brian Begerow (3-5), Richard Hoppe (2-5) and JP Soreensen (2-4), but the Broncos just couldn`t get that key hit as the Bengals won 15-5.
The Broncos came up short in the 3 – 2 contest, but there were some highlights to this very well played game. Carson Wooten started on the bump and didn`t allow a run in his 3 inning outing. Tyson Dellasilva came in and shut down the Allstars in the 7th, but we just couldn`t get that key hit to go with the good pitching performance. Cooper Thomas was solid in the game going 2 – 4 from the plate and scoring 2 runs. Brennan Rooks also went 2 – 4 with 2 RBI`s in the game. We stranded 8 runners in this very close contest. Game 2 was also a great game to watch, close with lots of action and opportunities for both teams. The Broncos out hit the Allstars 7 – 3, but just couldn`t put them together in the 5 – 2 loss. Scott Lyness went 2 – 2 from the plate and scored a run.
The Broncos jumped out to a quick start to the fall season with a 7 to 6 win over the BYU / Idaho Rebels. The team was lead by Cooper Thomas & Tyson Dellasilva with 2 hits a piece and 3 runs scored by the senior Broncos teammates. Ben Doran kept the Rebels off the scoreboard in his pitching debut as a Bronco, he also had a triple to help add to the run total. Game 2 with the Rebels was a complete change from the first game with the Bronco`s bats going silent in a 9 – 2 loss. The split on Saturday was a good chance to see all the new players that have joined the Broncos this fall.
