Bombers hold off late rally, win 11-7

From Herald Staff Reports

After new Dubois County Bombers head coach and former assistant Travis Lamar finished his head coaching debut on Friday night, he found himself with a winning percentage of 100 percent — not too shabby.

While it may be just one victory, it’s always a good feeling to win your first one of the season — especially in front of the home faithful. The Bombers were victorious 11-7 over Muhlenberg County at League Stadium in a game that had a closer score then the Bombers’ were probably hoping for.

Dubois County led 11-3 going into the ninth inning but the Stallions scored one run on an RBI single and three more on a double. However, the Bombers’ pitching settled down to get the final two outs of the night and start Dubois County off with a 1-0 record.

After they fell behind 1-0 early, Dubois County rallied with a three-run bottom of the first courtesy of an RBI walk and a two-RBI double from Adam Duffy. The Bombers expanded their lead to 4-1 on an error in the second inning but the Stallions once again rallied with two more in the top of the third to trim the gap to 4-3.

The Bombers’ scored runs in the third and fourth innings via bases-loaded walks to pull ahead 6-3 with even more runs to come in the sixth and seventh innings.

An RBI single from Zuriel Collins, an RBI single from Chase Hug and a run via a wild pitch gave Dubois County a 9-3 lead after six innings of play. Collins drove in two more runs in the seventh inning to score the final Bomber runs of the night.

Zuriel Collins was 3-of-4 with three RBIs, Chase Hug was 3-for-5 with an RBI while Matt Joslin and Austin Duffy also both added two RBIs each.

Nick Parrish was the winning pitcher on the mound for Dubois County as he pitched three scoreless innings while striking out two batters.
