After an offensive outpouring that saw them record 14 runs on 17 hits on Saturday night, the Dubois County Bombers were held to just four runs as they were defeated 7-4 by the Hoptown Hoppers at League Stadium on Sunday.
Things looked good early as Dubois County scored three runs immediately in the first inning to take a 3-0 lead. Matt Ellis had a RBI double, Britton Graham had an RBI single and Tucker Schank also drove in a run on an RBI single to give the Bombers the early advantage.
Hoptown answered right back in the second inning with two runs and tied things up in the top of the third inning. The Hoppers took the lead for the good as they scored a run in the fifth inning, two runs in the sixth and one more in the seventh.
The Bombers ended up driving in one more run in the bottom of the seventh inning as Schank scored Ellis with an RBI groundout.
Offensively, Matt Ellis led the way with a pair of base hits while Tucker Schank was the only Dubois County player with multiple RBIs. On the mound, Chase Rudy had the best outing as he pitched three innings giving up just one hit and one run while striking out three batters.
