Bombers settle in for road 'W’June 4, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
One inning of explosive offense fused with a staunch outing by hurler Ty Simpson, and the Dubois County Bombers sat pretty for a second straight night.
After trailing through the first three innings and squaring matters in the fourth, Dubois County erupted for four runs in the fifth and added a couple insurance scores in the ninth to stride past the Fulton Railroaders 7-2 on Monday in the Bluegrass State, the Bombers’ second win against Fulton in as many days.
Simpson (1-0), a Heritage Hills High School graduate, spun six innings of six-hit ball without yielding an earned run while striking out seven.
Meanwhile, the Bomber bats came around after Dubois County knotted the game on an error in the fourth.
Chris Tavares doubled to lead off the fifth inning and scored on a single by Kyle Schwinghamer. With two outs, Eric McKibban supplied another RBI single before Andre Davis drove in a pair with a base hit, giving the Bombers a 5-1 advantage.
Jarret Young furthered the lead with an RBI triple in the ninth, while Bryce Wilz and Forest Park High School product Marcus Beckman combined to pitch three innings of relief without surrendering an earned run.
The Bombers (2-0) clash with the Marion Bobcats (0-2) today at 8 p.m. EDT on the road, before a rematch Wednesday in Huntingburg.
