Busy week for the Bombers

The Bridgeport Bombers were in back-to-back action this past week, beginning with last Tuesday’s game at Sidney where the Junior pitching staff was busy trying to contain a high scoring situation. The Bombers got on board in the first inning thanks to Leyton’s Jakob Kruse who singled on the first pitch to score a run. However, they struggled to put runs on the board after that and their porous defense committed seven errors. Ultimately, they gave up 15 runs, eight of which were in the second inning. Holden Shultz was on the mound for the Bombers and went a little over three innings, striking out one, and allowing only five hits. Kruse threw the rest of the game in relief. He also led the team with two hits in three at bats. The score ended 6-15 in favor of the southern brothers.

Wheat Stem Sawfly Emergence — Field Notes from Early June

The wheat stem sawfly has begun emergence throughout the High Plains. Observations from the High Plains Ag Lab (HPAL) near Sidney, Nebraska, the USDA-ARS Research Station in Akron, Colorado, and as far east as Deuel County, Nebraska indicate very high populations of wheat stem sawfly in wheat fields. Additionally, as one walks wheat fallow fields, you can also find wheat stem sawflies flitting around the residue, regardless of what the annual crop might be. This is because the wheat stem sawfly survives from mid-July through May in the pupal stage within wheat residue left behind from the previous harvest.
