Bombers pounce for 10th-inning walkoff

From Herald Staff Reports

When you scratch out a total of three hits and endure a seven-inning scoreless stretch, you’ve got to get a little creative to score. That’s how the Dubois County Bombers made their extra-inning getaway Friday night at League Stadium.


Dubois County slipped past Fulton 3-2 in 10 innings, garnering the walkoff victory after Jordan Libman smacked a leadoff double, advanced on Anthony Sanchez’s sacrifice bunt, then scored the winning run on a wild pitch. Prior to that, the Bombers (26-9) had been scoreless until their two-run strike in the second inning as Alex Alders and Camdon Mercier both coaxed walks and later scored on Roman Trujillo’s sacrifice fly and Bryce Krizan’s RBI single.

Brandon Smith (2-0) chalked up the win with a scoreless last 22⁄3 innings to follow starter Cole Berry (52⁄3 innings) and Willie Poe, who allowed one run apiece as the three Bomber hurlers fused for a five-hitter.

The Bombers host Owensboro (17-19) tonight at 7.
