The final score for game three was Bombers 18 and the Mt. Olive Marauders 8. Matt Christopher, Ryan Graham and Nate Liedtka all combined their pitching efforts to hold the Marauders to 8 runs through six innings. Going in to the fifth inning, the team was down 7-4 until the Bombers did what they do best, HIT!!! The highlight of the inning came off the bat of Nate Liedtka who blasted a grandslam over the fence. Doubles were also added in the game by Carella, Christopher, Liedtka, Graham and Cooper Quigley. The Bombers came up with 14 runs in the fifth inning with a total of 22 hits in the game.
