For a second straight game, the Swift Current 57's bullpen couldn't hold onto a late lead.
Coming off a loss in Medicine Hat on Friday, Swift Current fell 8-7 in game one of their seven-inning doubleheader with the Brooks Bombers.
The 57's raced out to a 4-0 lead in the top of the second inning and held a 7-3 lead heading into the bottom of the seventh inning. Bombers left fielder Jake Griffith hit the walk-off RBI single.
Second baseman Koby Bubash had three of Swift Current's four hits in the game, scoring twice himself, and collecting an RBI.
Will Gifford threw six innings with six strikeouts for the 57's while surrendering three earned runs.
A couple of multi-run innings for the Bombers in game two was enough to propel them to an 8-5 win.
Brooks scored once in the third, three in the fourth, and four in the fifth. The 57's replied with a pair in the fourth and sixth and once more in the seventh.
Swift Current's left fielder Luke Addison hit a two-run homer in the loss and went 2-for-3 collecting three RBIs.
