Bombers can't complete rally

From Herald Staff Reports

A late rally wasn’t enough to stop the Dubois County Bombers’ losing streak Tuesday night.

Dubois County fell 4-3 at the Owensboro Oilers to drop their third straight game, though the Bombers plated three runs in the seventh inning to knot the game at 3.

In the seventh, Andre Davis scored on a wild pitch, and Cole Griesinger and Hamilton Carr each drove in a run for Dubois County (5-4).

The Bombers registered seven hits, one more than Owensboro. But Dubois County also committed three errors, including one each in the fourth and seventh innings, when the Oilers (4-3) scored.

Seven players notched a hit for Dubois County, as Davis, Shain Showers and Jacob Armstrong each scored a run and recorded a hit.

Jasper High School graduate Spencer Sapp drew the start for the Bombers, allowing five hits and three runs (two earned) over 42⁄3 innings. He also struck out eight and walked three. Pike Central High School alum Clint Chestnut (1-1) accepted the loss, giving up an earned run in the bottom of the seventh.

The Bombers host the Oilers tonight at 7 at League Stadium.
