Bombers strong-arm OwensboroJuly 19, 2017
From Herald Staff Reports
One first-inning single was all that separated the Dubois County Bomber pitching staff from a combined no-hitter Tuesday night. After that, Cole Berry, Hunter Childress, David Ellis, Jordan Libman and Roman Trujillo combined to prevent Owensboro from reaching base via a hit throughout the rest of Dubois County’s 13-1 pummeling of the Oilers in Kentucky.
Owensboro (18-22) pushed in its only run courtesy of three walks and a hit batsman in the third inning against Berry, who started and worked three innings. Childress handled the next two and received credit for his first win of the season. Ellis next pitched a perfect two innings, while Libman and Trujillo split the final two frames.
Alex Alders smashed two homers for the Bombers (28-11), including a three-run shot in the top of the first. He finished 2-for-3 with five RBIs. Trujillo also recorded two hits and logged three RBIs courtesy of his two-run homer in the top of the ninth, before he took the mound in the bottom half to finish the blowout.
Andrew Tanous also collected a pair of doubles, while Libman singled, tripled and scored twice.
Dubois County (28-11) wraps up the regular season tonight at 7 when the Hoptown Hoppers (24-15) pay a visit to League Stadium in Huntingburg. The Bombers will then open the Ohio Valley League playoffs Friday at home, with their first-round opponent yet to be determined.
