Ramsey's big day leads Bombers to victoryAugust 3, 2018
From Herald Staff Reports
The Bluegrass World Series in Louisville has continued to treat the Dubois County Bombers well as they improved to 2-0 in the tournament after a 10-2 victory over the Westchase Express on Thursday night at Slugger Field.
The Bombers held a 5-0 advantage after the first two innings and never looked back after that, outhitting the Express 12 to 7 and committing zero errors compared to Westchase’s four.
In the first inning, Nolan Ramsey drove in Cooper Trinkle and Brad Fuhrhop with a two-RBI double to give the Bombers a 2-0 lead and then Payton Mattingly immediately followed that with an RBI single of his own to drive in Ramsey to make the lead 3-0.
Fuhrhop would drive in Ben Wilcoxson on an RBI groundout in the second inning while Sam Mudd would score on an error to push the Bombers lead to 5-0. Dubois County’s lead would stretch to 6-0 in the fourth inning as Ramsey recorded his third RBI of the night by driving in Tanner Craig.
The Express inched closer in the top of the sixth inning with a two-RBI double from Joseph Barfield to make it 6-2 but the Bombers got those two runs right back in the bottom of the inning courtesy of a two-run homer from Ramsey to increase his RBI count to five.
Pinch-hitter (and Bombers assistant coach) Caleb Wagner came into the game in the eighth inning and drove in a Craig to make it 9-2 while Jake Lewis drove in the final run of the night to seal the Bombers 10-2 victory.
Wagner wasn’t the only Bomber coach who played in the victory — pitching coach Travis Lamar closed the game with a three up, three down bottom of the ninth inning while striking out one on the mound. Colton Easterwood, Reece Kleinhelter and Ryan Luckett held things down on the mound prior to Lamar’s appearance.
The Bombers will face the Jasper Reds today at the Bluegrass World Series in the Battle of Dubois County at 3:30 p.m.
