The Broken Bow junior baseball team fell behind 9-1 in the first two innings of Thurdsay's game against Lexington.
They also almost pulled off a massive comeback.
The Indians cut the lead all the way down to 13-12 in the bottom of the seventh inning and had a runner on third base when Josh Jacobsen was caught with too big of a lead at first and was picked off.
Another round of severe storms made their way through the region last night, dumping heavy rains, some small hail and prompting several tornado warnings. Tornado sirens were sounded in Broken Bow about 4 p.m. Wednesday, after the National Weather Service in North Platte reported seeing rotation on their radar about 8 miles southwest of Broken Bow heading northeast. While there were no confirmed reports of an actual tornado touching down in or around Broken Bow, there was a confirmed report by a trained spotter of a tornado on the ground near Comstock.
