Bombers split with OilersJuly 12, 2014
From Herald Staff Reports
One out of two ain’t bad, and the Dubois County Bombers gladly accepted it Friday night in their trip across the Ohio River.
The Bombers found themselves on the wrong end of a walk-off win in the first game of a doubleheader against Owensboro, but after the Oilers pocketed their 3-2 victory, Dubois County turned around and engineered a 7-3 triumph in Game 2. The Bombers (17-17) remained at .500 and took over third place in the Ohio Valley League after Fulton (15-16) lost Friday.
Sam Griggs applied the final touches to Friday’s nightcap in the seventh inning by scurrying around the bases for an inside-the-park home run against his former team. Griggs also scored on Glenn Jones’ RBI groundout in the fourth as the Bombers pushed their lead to 4-1 and built a cushion plenty substantial for Evansville native Devin Williams to collect his first victory of the summer. The Oilers tallied one of their three runs in the third inning, when Williams (1-3) struck out the side.
Earlier, another Pocket City product was a tough-luck loser for the Bombers as Ryan Dills (2-2) tossed all seven innings but Owensboro foiled the effort with the game-winning tally in the seventh. Dubois County had knotted the game in its half of the seventh when Nick Gobert poked a leadoff single and scored on an error.
The Bombers take today off before returning to League Stadium on Sunday at 6 p.m. to face Madisonville.
