Bombers Roll In Game One, Take 1-0 Lead

The Bombers opened postseason play with a bang as they run-ruled the Owensboro RiverDawgs in game 1. DC’s offense went off last night, winning 13-3 over the River Dawgs.

Dubois County went on the attack from the get-go, plating 5 runs in the first 2 innings. Owensboro scored 2 in the sixth to make it 5-2, but it was to no avail. The Bombers plated 5 in the bottom of the sixth. Owensboro would go on to plate another run in the 7th.

Leading 10-3 in the bottom of the seventh, the Bombers put the game away. Ben Wilcoxson’s RBI double made it 11-3, then Wilcoxson scored off a sac fly. The game ended when Huntingburg, IN native Tucker Schank scored off a wild pitch. Because DC had a 10 run lead after 7, the game was called.

Following game 1, the series shifts to Owensboro for game 2. The Bombers won all three regular season meetings in Owensboro, including a thrilling 6-5 come from behind win on July 15th.

If DC wins Saturday, they will move to the next round to face the winner of the Henderson/Madisonville series. However, if the Dawgs take game 2, there will be a game 3 at League Stadium on Sunday.

July 30th marked the start of the first round throughout the OVL.
