Behrends served notice that a pitcher's duel was in the works early, fanning the side in the bottom of the first after Patoka ace Johnnie Clift pitched out of a jam in the top of the frame.
He served notice that a special night was in store in the second, recording four strikeouts, including a pair looking to get out of a first-and-third jam following a single, stolen base and a Patoka batter reaching after a third strike skipped away from catcher Dustin Lawson.
Behrends reached double digits in the strikeout department by the third inning, and the Bombers finally broke through against Clift in the sixth.
Dalton Parks got things going with a one-out single and moved to second on a wild pitch. Behrends then sent a check-swing grounder to Patoka shortstop Shane Cain, and Cain's throw to first was in the dirt, skipping away from Ryan Miller, allowing Parks to score from second.
Landon Feezel followed with an RBI single to score Behrends from second. The Bombers (8-7) added an insurance run in the seventh on a suicide squeeze bunt by Parks to score Levi Maxey from third.
Clift wound up with 12 strikeouts of his own and allowed just five hits. But the Bombers had much more success against the Warriors ace than they did in their previous meeting with the righty, as he shut them out on just three hits during the regular season.
"The guys came in with a lot of confidence that they would get something done today," Beccue said. "It's all them.
"We've had some issues getting some timely hits. We've been working hard at hitting the baseball and cutting down on our strikeouts and putting good swings on pitches. Guys are still working at it. They haven't hung their heads this year."
