Bombers fall to Reds but advance to title gameAugust 3, 2018
From Herald Staff Reports
In Friday afternoon’s Battle of Dubois County, the Jasper Reds were able to put together a strong performance and defeat the Dubois County Bombers 4-0.
Even though the Bombers lost their first game of the tournament, they still received some very good news — with their record of 2-1, they will face the Louisville Stars (a team composed of ex-MLB All-Stars) in the tournament’s championship game tonight at 6 p.m.
The Reds scored all four of their runs in the first three innings but that would be enough as Dubois County was held scoreless on just five hits in the game.
In the first inning, Garrett Camp drove in Austin Simmers on an RBI groundout for the first run of the night to give Jasper a 1-0 lead. Jasper expanded their lead to 3-0 in the second inning courtesy of an RBI groundout from Noah Luebbehusen and an RBI single from Simmers.
The final run of the game came in the bottom of the third inning when LaWan Rollins hit a ball deep to center field for a sacrifice fly to bring in Devon Franz to make it 4-0 Reds.
On the mound, Cole Bullock got the win for Jasper as he pitched five scoreless innings giving up just three hits and striking out three batters. Franz got the start and he gave up just two hits while striking out five batters.
Kevin Davis took the loss for the Bombers as he gave up four hits, three earned runs and a walk in two innings of work.
Simmers paced Jasper’s offense with three hits, including a triple. The Bombers five hits were recorded by Cooper Trinkle, Evan Kahre, Nolan Ramsey, John McDonald and Chase Andrews.
