Bombers halt skidJuly 10, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
After both squads’ bats erupted for early-inning rallies, a seventh-inning tear by the Dubois County Bombers launched them ahead for good, ending the team’s four-game losing streak.
The Bombers engineered a four-run first inning and tacked on five runs in the seventh to hush the Fulton Railroaders 11-9 on Tuesday in Kentucky.
The Railroaders mustered five runs in the bottom of the second inning and didn’t relinquish the lead until the seventh, when Dubois County (15-16) trailed 8-6. The Bombers’ Andre Davis ripped a two-RBI single and Shain Showers drove in three runs on a two-out double to break an 8-all tie and eventually help Dubois County end its longest skid of the season.
Johnathan Williams (4-2) surrendered three runs on three hits in five innings of relief work for the Bombers. Kyle Briner started for Dubois County and yielded two earned runs in four innnings. Each pitcher struck out four.
The Bombers collected their four first-inning scores on a Bo Ausmus double, a Davis single, a Jarret Young base hit and a wild pitch.
Eric McKibban notched three hits and scored three times, Ausmus doubled twice, scored three times and drove in a run and Davis scored two runs and drove in three for the Bombers, who will open a home-and-home series with the Ohio Valley League cellar-dwelling Marion (6-24) tonight at 7 at League Stadium in Huntingburg.
