Cortina’s home run cut the Bombers lead to 3-2. But they got the runs right back in the top of the seventh on a two-run single by Hunter Melton off of Generals relief pitcher Juan Cortina.
Armando Arevalo pitched two scoreless innings for the Generals with three strikeouts.
Alvaro Rondon led the Generals offensively going 2-for-5 on the night.
With the loss, the Generals fall to 22-25 on the season and 5-12 in the second-half. The Bombers improve to 37-11 overall and 11-7 in the second-half.
