Rallying Bombers stop HoppersJune 21, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
Just as Hoptown was about to secure its second triumph against Dubois County in as many days, the Bombers engineered the surge they needed.
Trailing by a run entering the top of the ninth, Dubois County tallied a pair of runs — the first on a Shain Showers sacrifice fly and the second on a fielding error — to capture a 7-6 win against the Hoppers on Thursday in Hopkinsville, Ky.
The Bombers pounced early, as Chris Tavares (2-for-4, three RBIs) launched a two-run home run in the first inning and Andre Davis (3-for-5, double) plated Showers on a single, one of 12 Bomber hits. The Hoppers evened things with a three-run homer before the Bombers (8-7) added a pair in the second inning, including an RBI single by Tavares that plated Eric McKibban (three runs).
The Hoppers then rallied for three runs to take the lead 6-5 in the sixth. It remained that way until the Bombers’ last-chance rally.
Jonathan Williams (2-0) delivered two scoreless innings of relief for the Bombers, who host Madisonville tonight at 7 at League Stadium.
