From Herald Staff Reports
The Dubois County Bombers got the jump on both of their weekend opponents, taking a pair of games and elevating their record above the .500 mark.
Dubois County throttled Marion 12-3 on Saturday night at League Stadium, then traveled to Hopkinsville, where they dumped the Hoptown Hoppers 4-3 on Sunday.
Dubois County (13-11) scored eight runs in the first two innings against Marion (6-18) and added four more in the sixth frame.
Andre Davis led the Bombers, finishing 4-for-4 with three runs scored and three RBIs, as Eric McKibban went 3-for-5 with two runs and an RBI and Bo Ausmus, Chris Tavares, Shain Showers and Jacob Armstrong each added two hits. Dane Giesler, a 2012 Jasper High School graduate, finished hitless in four at-bats but scored a run.
Kyle Briner (3-0) tossed six innings, allowing three runs (two earned) while striking out five.
The Bombers grabbed the initial lead again Sunday, registering three runs in the third inning against Hoptown (15-9), which is two games ahead of Dubois County in the Ohio Valley League; Owensboro and Fulton are also two games back.
Giesler helped the third-inning attack, contributing an RBI groundout. Pike Central High School alumnus Clint Chestnut (2-2) evened his record by pitching 4 1/3 innings after entering in the fifth. He allowed three hits without yielding a run, and he finished with three strikeouts.
Dubois County has today off before hosting Hoptown on Tuesday night at 7 at League Stadium. The Bombers will then visit Madisonville in a Wednesday doubleheader before playing a Fourth of July contest at home Thursday versus Madisonville.
