Bombers stumbleJuly 17, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
With a little more than a week left in the Ohio Valley League regular season, the Dubois County Bombers are jockeying for better postseason position. Yet Tuesday’s doubleheader with the Madisonville Pirates simply shoved them farther toward the back of the pack.
In Game One, eight Pirates scored at least one run in the host’s 14-3 whipping of the Bombers, while Dubois County coughed up a one-run lead in the fifth inning of Game Two before falling 4-2, its fifth loss in a row.
The Bombers scored twice in the opener’s first frame, as Casey Ryan notched a double and scored on Eric McKibban’s triple before Andre Davis drove in McKibban with a sacrifice fly. From there, the Pirates jumped for four runs in the first, two in the third, five in the fourth and another three in the sixth, tallying 14 hits altogether. Hunter Serrato (2-for-3) had the Bombers’ only multihit performance.
In the finale, Michael Paisley worked four innings for Dubois County (17-21), surrendering three runs (one earned) on eight hits. Jonathan Williams didn’t give up an earned run in two innings of relief.
Hamilton Carr singled to lead off the game, stole second and later scored on an error. The Bombers silenced Madisonville until the fifth. In that inning, however, the Pirates (21-17) scored three runs via an error, a fielder’s choice and a sacrifice fly.
The Bombers will look to rebound when they host Owensboro (18-20) at 7 tonight in Huntingburg.
