Air Hogs Slam Boulders, 9-2

Baseball team offering "Heat Wave" special prices.

A balanced offensive attack that had seven players with at least one RBI powered Grand Prairie past the Rockland Boulders, 9-2, in the second game of a four game set on Tuesday.

The Air Hogs set the tempo in the top of the first, scoring two runs off of Boulders starter Julian Sampson. Centerfielder Keanon Simon would come around to score on a fielder’s choice and Andreas Rodriguez homered to take the early 2-0.

Grand Prairie would go on to score at least one run in the next 5 consecutive innings. The bright spot for Rockland was Ryan Scoma who hit his third home run of the year in the bottom of the fifth to put the Boulders on the board.

Sampson pitched seven innings surrendering eight earned runs in the loss. Air Hogs starter John Brownell threw a complete game surrendering two runs while striking out six. 

Rockland does battle against Grand Prairie again tonight at 7 P.M. $1 hot dogs all night at Provident Bank Park along with Around the World Night presented by Stir Crazy.

Heat Wave

The forecast calls for scorchers the next couple of days, and the warmer it gets, the higher the discount on Boulders Baseball at Provident Bank Park.

At the time of purchase, for every degree it is above 90 degrees as per weather.com fans will receive a $1 discount off the price of their ticket. This is for any seat in the house, but can only be purchased at the box office at Provident Bank Park in Pomona.

If the temperature reaches 98 degrees at the time a fan is purchasing a ticket the prices would be as follows:

HP Box normally $16 now $8
INF Box normally $13 not $5
OF Box normally $11 now $3
Grandstand normally $8 now free

With expected temperatures of 96 today that would be a $6 savings, and 97 on Thursday will be up to $7 or nearly a free ticket.

Look there are a lot of things that are fun, that people do not get to do because it costs too much. Do you skip your mortgage payments to go to Disney? No. That would be irresponsible. Although I don't agree that the building of the Stadium on spec, for a baseball league with a dubious track record, hoping for profit from third-party events that were not guaranteed, contracted or even in negotiation, during an economic downturn, was even remotely wise. I do however, agree that, if one can ignore the significant potential for fiscal damage arising from the expense of the Stadium, you can go there with your family and have fun. It is a little like the band playing while the ship sinks.
