Slide balances Bomber fortunesJuly 15, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
It’s not the balance they’d like, but the Dubois County Bombers have leveled last week’s three-game win streak with a weekend slide of the same length.
The Bombers followed up a Friday setback by dropping a 7-4 road decision Saturday at Hopkinsville and a 4-3 defeat to Madisonville on Sunday at League Stadium. Sunday, the Bombers scratched back from a 4-1 deficit with single runs in the eighth and ninth innings, and Dubois County packed the bases with runners in the ninth before a lineout to end the game left the sacks loaded.
Eric McKibban notched three hits and added an RBI, while Hunter Serrato and Andre Davis both donated a piar of hits for the Bombers.
Kyle Briner (3-1) absorbed his first defeat of the season Sunday while yielding three runs in 61â„3 innings. Saturday, Hoptown jumped Bomber pitching earlier in the game, as the Hoppers bounded to a 7-0 lead. Dubois County bunched all its offensive production into the seventh inning, capitalizing on two errors. Jasper High School product Dane Giesler, who finished with two hits along with teammates Shain Showers and Davis, produced an RBI single in the frame.
The Bombers (17-19) have slid into fifth place in the six-team league with 11 days remaining in the regular season; the top four teams make the postseason playoffs. Dubois County has today off and will visit Madisonville on Tuesday before Wednesday’s tussle at League Stadium against Owensboro.
