Bombers open postseason play with routJuly 26, 2019
From Herald Staff Reports
Talk about a way to start your postseason run. The No. 3 seed Dubois County Bombers exploded for 15 runs on 13 hits as they defeated the No. 2 Owensboro RiverDawgs 15-1 in seven innings to take a 1-0 lead in their first round matchup of the Ohio Valley League playoffs.
Dubois County jumped out to a 1-0 lead courtesy of an RBI single from Matt Ellis but Owensboro answered right back in the bottom of the first to tie things up on an RBI single from Ian Ellis. However, that would be the final run for the RiverDawgs.
The Bombers jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the third inning after an RBI single from Britton Graham and another run crossed home plate after a RiverDawgs error. They quickly expanded their lead to 4-1 in the fourth inning on a sacrifice fly from Tyler Best.
The big inning for the Bombers was the fifth inning as six runs crossed the plate to open up a 10-1 lead — Benji Brokemond drove in two runs on an RBI single, Chase Hug drove in a run with an RBI single and Tyler Van Pelt drove in two on a fielder’s choice.
Dubois County’s final five runs would come courtesy of a solo home run from Bryson McNay in the sixth and RBIs from Ellis, Brokemond and Easton Stewart in the seventh inning.
Benji Brokemond led the way going 5-for-5 with three RBIs while Tyler Best and Britton Graham also both had multiple hits. Patrick Queener pitched a complete game victory as he gave up seven hits and one earned run while striking out four batters to improve to 4-1 on the season.
The Bombers will continue postseason play tonight at home as a victory would send them into the second round of the OVL playoffs.
