Miscue helps Bombers' rallyAugust 2, 2012
From Herald Staff Reports
With the way they rip the ball around the park, the Dubois County Bombers usually don’t need much help. Wednesday night, however, they received some in the form of a ninth-inning error, which helped the Bombers secure a 6-5 win over the Quincy Gems at League Stadium.
The Bombers (33-22, 13-13 second half) improved their winning streak to four games, as nine players registered at least one hit for Dubois County; Zach Long, Scott Windler and Chris Tavares each finished with two. Heritage Hills graduate Drew Rosbottom finished 1-for-4, smacking an RBI double and also scoring a run.
Nick Smart (4-1) picked up the win for Dubois County, entering in relief in the eighth and pitching a scoreless ninth after Jon Rashid pitched the first seven inning for the Bombers. Rashid allowed 10 hits and four runs (two earned), while walking three and striking out two.
Quincy (31-24, 13-12) scored twice in the first and third innings, and once in the eighth to tie the game at 5, before Long scampered home in the ninth on the Gems’ fourth error of the game.
Rosbottom’s run-scoring double came during the Bombers’ three-run second inning; Ryan Simmons added an RBI single and Long contributed a sacrifice fly. Also for the Bombers, Dalton Rouleau hit a sacrifice fly in the first inning and then scored an unearned run in the fifth.
Dubois County visits Quincy tonight for a 7:35 start.
