Bombers fall in longball stormJune 27, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
When the Dubois County Bombers square off against the Fulton Railroaders tonight, they might choose to pitch around Ramon Valdez.
The Railroaders’ catcher launched two home runs and accrued seven RBIs in a slugfest that sent the Bombers home stomaching a 12-8 defeat despite three homers of their own Wednesday night in Fulton, Ky.
The Bombers (10-9) yielded a six-run rally in the third inning and another five scores in the sixth, the latter capped by Valdez’s grand slam that made it 11-4. He also muscled a three-run shot in the third.
However, the Bombers did engineer responses. Bo Ausmus (3-for-5, four runs) cracked a two-run home run in the fifth and Chris Tavares smacked a homer with two aboard in the seventh inning to slice Fulton’s lead to 12-7. Ausmus added a solo shot in the top of the ninth to cap Dubois County’s production.
Connor Strain (0-1) permitted six runs in three innings for the Bombers, who outhit the Railroaders 10-8 but left nine runners on base. Andre Davis moved from left field to pitcher in the eighth and struck out two while working a scoreless inning.
The Bombers, who sit 3 1â„2 games behind first-place Hoptown, will host the Railroaders (10-10) today at 7 p.m. at League Stadium.
