Bombers Manage Another Comeback In 7-5 Playoff Win

Bombers Manage Another Comeback In 7-5 Playoff Win

In a season where comebacks were the rule, the Bombers opened the playoffs by returning to a familiar script last night, rallying for a hard-fought 7-5 victory over the Henderson Flash. The game was the first of a best-of-three series in the first round of the Ohio Valley League playoffs.

It was not a promising start, but then that is the way with comebacks. Henderson scored three unearned runs in the first inning. Bomber starting pitcher Jack Anderson deserved a better fate. He ended up striking out the side, but a pair of errors and three base hits by Henderson led to the early advantage. [Read more…]

Serious Fun In Mixed Up Loss to Owensboro

Serious Fun In Mixed Up Loss to Owensboro

The RiverDawgs took the win last night 6-3 against the Bombers last night in a game that had no bearing on the playoff scenerio as Owensboro already earned the East Division Champions trophy.  Bombers were locked into the #2 spot.  

That doesn’t mean they didn’t take it serious.  There was, obviously, some serious fun had during the game.  No one played their normal positions. Tobe pinch ran & led the way in stolen bases.  There may have been a hidden ball trick play.  Evan Hall led the Bombers with 2 hits.  That’s the kind of game it was.  Owensboro seemed to mix things up too.  Great way to end the regular season…loose & laughing.  

Everyone gets back to business on Friday.  The Bombers will host Round 1 of the Playoffs against the Henderson Flash.  Come fill League Stadium & cheer on the Bombers during the Playoffs.   All tickets will be $5 general admission.  Season Ticket holders maintain their seats.
