Chiefs pull away late, defeat BombersJune 16, 2019
From Herald Staff Reports
The Dubois County Bombers had a chance to record their first three-game winning streak of the season but unfortunately, it wasn’t quite in the cards.
They were defeated at home 12-8 by the Paducah Chiefs as the visiting Chiefs used a four-run third inning and a five-run seventh inning to propel themselves to victory.
Dubois County (5-6) struck first in the first inning courtesy of an RBI bunt single by Evan Kahre but the Chiefs tied things right back up in the top of the second inning, 1-1.
Paducah went on to put up a four-spot in the top of the fourth inning, capped off by a two-run homer from Grayson Taylor, to pull ahead 5-1.
The Chiefs expanded their lead to 7-1 in the fourth inning but the Bombers pulled right back in it with a four-run bottom of the fourth to trim the lead to 7-5. Marcus Hill, Zuriel Collins and Austin Duffy all had RBIs in the inning for the Bombers.
Dubois County trimmed the lead to 7-6 in the sixth inning as Chase Hug scored Collins with an RBI double. However, Paducah answered right back with five runs in the seventh inning to pull themselves ahead 12-6.
The Bombers did score two runs in the bottom of the seventh courtesy of an RBI single from Hill and a steal of home by Benji Brokemond but that would be the final runs of the game for Dubois County.
Chase Hug, Austin Duffy and Matt Ellis all had two-hit ball games for Dubois County while Marcus Hill led the way with two runs driven in.
Bennett Shoptaw fell to 0-1 on the season as he gave up six earned runs on six hits in the loss.
