Bombers close with flourishJuly 20, 2017
From Herald Staff Reports
After a seven-run sixth inning seemingly punctuated the regular-season finale for the Dubois County Bombers on Wednesday at League Stadium, the Bombers continued their late-season trend of having a little fun on the mound.
Craig Shepherd handled the eighth inning before Alex Alders closed out a 12-3 win against the Hoptown Hoppers (24-16). Both Shepherd and Alders have spent their summers, and time in college, primarily as position players.
Logan Moseley started on the mound and allowed two runs in four innings, while Ryan Gulledge (3-1) hurled two scoreless innings of relief to pick up the win.
In Dubois County’s breakout sixth inning, Jackson Blevins smashed a three-run double as part of a 2-for-3, four-RBI day. Forest Park graduate Eli Knust also delivered an RBI double, while Alders and Philip Archer each walked to drive in a run. Blevins was the only Bomber to record multiple hits in a game where 13 players batted for Dubois County.
The Bombers (29-11) will commence play in the Ohio Valley League postseason Friday, when the Fulton Railroaders (18-22) visit League Stadium at 7 p.m. for the first game of a best-of-3 series. Game 2 will be Saturday in Kentucky, with Game 3 on Sunday in Huntingburg if necessary.
