Bombers continue trend of playing extras in home lossJune 17, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
Playing extra baseball has become an early trend for the Dubois County Bombers this season. Saturday night, they received an unfavorable result.
For the fourth time this year and the third occasion in its last four games, Dubois County entered extra innings Saturday, when Marion escaped with a 2-1, 12-inning victory at League Stadium.
Pike Central High School graduate Clint Chestnut (1-2) absorbed the loss, pitching the final three innings. He allowed three hits and an earned run in the 12th; he also struck out two.
Marion (3-9) scored its first run in the sixth, while Dubois County (7-6) tied the contest in the eighth on an Andre Davis RBI single. He stole second but was left stranded.
Forest Park high school graduate Kyle Schwinghamer (1-for-4) and Jasper High school alum Dane Giesler (1-for-5) were two of seven players to register a hit for the Bombers, who had won their three previous extra-inning ballgames this year.
Dubois County will play at Owensboro (7-5) on Tuesday night at 8:05.
