Sapp strong, but Bombers fall

From Herald Staff Reports

Starting the night with five shutout innings, yielding three runs for the game and tossing all eight innings, Spencer Sapp gave the Dubois County Bombers a chance.


The Jasper High School graduate and future Ohio University pitcher etched a solid outing Tuesday in Owensboro, but the Bomber offense never percolated as Dubois County accepted a 3-0 defeat to the Oilers at Kamuf Park in Kentucky. The Bombers outhit Owensboro 8-7 on the night, but Dubois County (10-8) stranded every baserunner and committed two errors, one of which allowed Owensboro to break through.

The Oilers used a two-out error in the sixth inning to plate two unearned runs. They added another in the eighth off Sapp (0-3), who struck out three and walked six.

Another former JHS standout, Dane Giesler, popped a double and a single for the Bombers while Eric McKibban joined Giesler with a two-hit effort.

The Bombers head to Fulton tonight to clash with the Railroaders before returning to Huntingburg for a 7 p.m. home game Thursday against Fulton.
