Offense shines but Bombers split weekend games

From Herald Staff Reports

The Dubois County Bombers had two rather high scoring games this weekend as they scored 13 and 16 runs, respectively.

However, the Bombers went 1-1 on the weekend. Believe it or not, the game Dubois County scored 16 runs was actually when they took their first loss of the season.

On Saturday, the Bombers were defeated in Henderson by the Flash in a game that looked more like a football final score — 20-16.

Dubois County led 8-6 entering the bottom of the seventh inning but the Flash scored five runs in the seventh and a whopping nine runs in the eighth to pull away for the victory. Four runs in the eighth and four more runs in the ninth wasn’t enough for the Bomber comeback.

Chase Hug had a huge night for Dubois County as he was 2-5 with two home runs and a grand total of 8 — yes, 8 — RBIs. Bryson McNay also hit his first home run of the year while Zuriel Collins and Easton Stewart both racked up three hits each.

On Sunday, the Bombers defeated the Fulton Railroaders 13-5 thanks to 13 hits and a balanced offensive attack.

Five different players had multiple hits led by Stewart’s three base knocks and four total RBIs. Matt Joslin also added two RBIs as he hit his first dinger of the year. Hug, McNay and returning Bomber Evan Kahre all also had two hits a piece.

Thomas King recorded the win on the mound as he pitched three scoreless innings in relief after the Bombers trailed 3-1 early in the contest.
