Bombers advance to final roundJuly 26, 2017
From Herald Staff Reports
The Dubois County Bombers were just trying to make it a little more interesting.
The Bombers sealed a trip to the Ohio Valley League finals by topping the Paducah Chiefs 10-6 on Tuesday night in Kentucky. Dubois County entered the seventh inning trailing 6-0 before scoring the game’s final 10 runs in the last three frames.
Alex Alders blasted a two-run homer to start the comeback in the seventh, while Andrew Tanous roped a two-RBI double to put the Bombers (33-12) in front in the eighth. Alders tripled in the ninth for good measure.
Ryan Gulledge started on the mound and lasted 32⁄3 innings. He surrendered five runs before ceding to Logan Moseley, who picked up the win after hurling 31⁄3 innings. David Ellis notched a two-inning save to close out the Chiefs (21-24).
Alders finished 3-for-5 with three RBIs and three runs scored, while Zack Gray singled and scored twice. Jaxson Blair finished with a double and two singles to drive in a run and score another.
Dubois County has now advanced to the championship round, where it will meet the Hoptown Hoppers.
The Hoppers (28-17) claimed the regular season title in the West Division, while the Bombers will try and claim their second title in three years after winning the OVL’s East Division.
