Bomber cushion doesn't last

From Herald Staff Reports

A three-run lead was nice for the Dubois County Bombers, but the cushion didn’t have staying power.

The Bombers sprang to an early advantage on the road Friday night at Hopkinsville, Ky., but the host Hoptown Hoppers pecked into the deficit and dealt Dubois County a 5-4 defeat.

Former Jasper High School players merged for the first Bomber run as Mark Giesler drove in Nick Gobert in the second inning. Joe Redburn and Caleb Lonkard each scored in the third inning for a 3-0 Bomber lead before Hoptown (10-0) overtook Dubois County in the latter innings.

The Bombers (3-7) return to League Stadium for three games this weekend. They’ll host Fulton today in a doubelheader starting at 5 p.m., then welcome Madisonville on Sunday at 6 p.m.
