Linton lifts BombersJune 3, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
Though they may have changed leagues, the Dubois County Bombers haven’t forgotten how to win.
The Bombers kickstarted their 2013 campaign snaring a 7-5 win against the Fulton Railroaders on Sunday at League Stadium in Huntingburg. The opening win required a rally, as Bombers catcher Rick Linton smoked a two-run home run in the eighth inning to supply Dubois County (1-0) with a 6-5 edge before Chris Taveras scored on a wild pitch later in the inning to provide a two-run cushion.
Center fielder Hamilton Carr matched Linton with two RBIs for the Bombers, who trailed 4-2 after three innings before scoring twice in the fourth and three times in the bottom of the eighth. First baseman Hunter Serrato collected two hits and scored twice, while Tavares (2-for-3) and Jacob Armstrong (1-for-1) also scored for Dubois County. Eric McKibban gathered two base hits as well.
Jonathan Williams (1-0) yielded one run and struck out three in three innings of relief, while Clint Chestnut earned the save pitching a three-up, three-down ninth. Starter Spencer Sapp hurled five innings as the Jasper native surrendered four earned runs on five hits while fanning five.
The Bombers will cross state lines tonight to battle the Railroaders again after the teams’ Saturday tilt was postponed by rain. The first pitch is set for 8 EDT.
