County Bombers 10, Muhlenberg County Stallions 2. (From
Dubois County) The Dubois County Bombers broke open a tight game with an 8-run 7th inning last night on the way to their second consecutive lopsided victory in front of 808 fans on Youth League night.
Fresh off of a 10-2 drubbing of the Paducah Chiefs on Monday, the Bombers downed the Muhlenberg County Stallions by the same score behind a balanced offense and the strong right arm of Renton Poole.
Poole pitched seven innings for Dubois County. He limited the Stallions to three hits while striking out eight. He didn’t walk a single batter. Yet, after he pitched the top of the seventh, the Bombers' lead was only 2-0.
At the seventh-inning stretch, Scott Sollman closed his nightly Harry Caray rendition of Take Me Out To The Ballgame with the familiar call of, “Hey! Let’s get some runs!”
The Bombers immediately responded in a manner that would have made ol' Harry proud. Five straight singles ignited the rally that saw 13 Bombers come to the plate. Eight different Bombers scored, and the only one who didn't was 90 feet away as the frame finally expired.
Five different hitters came to the plate with the bases loaded in the eighth. It would not be a night where missed opportunities had to be dissected. Each of the five drove in at least one run.
The big blow was a two-run single off the bat of Trey Fulton over a drawn-in Stallions infield that doubled the existing 2-run lead.
Anchoring the heart of the Dubois County lineup, Zack Gray and Fulton had three hits apiece.
Muhlenberg County escaped the shutout by scoring two runs in the ninth inning, but reliever Brian Wichman sealed the deal by coaxing a double play ball and a pop up.
Poole is now 2-1 on the season. His ERA drops to 1.26. Aaron Glichstein takes the loss for the Stallions. His record falls to 0-3, despite only allowing 2 runs in five innings of work.
Dubois County is off tonight. They return to action in a double-header at Muhlenberg County on Thursday.
The next Bomber home game will be Sunday, July 3 with the annual Independence Day fireworks show after the game. Complete
Hoppers 6, Madisonville Miners 2. (From
Madisonville) The Hoptown Hoppers continued their stellar play Monday night with a 6-2 victory over the Miners at Elmer Kelley Stadium in Madisonville. The win was the third straight for first place Hoptown (21-2), while the loss was the second straight for the third place Miners (11-9).
Hopper hurler Casey Queener pitched seven innings of two-hit baseball to get the Win, and at the plate right-fielder Grant Robbins (2-for4) drove in all six Hopper runs.
All of their eight hits and six runs came from the top half of the Hopper batting order, with Chase Schmittou, Matt Crowder, Andrew Gross, and Grant Robbins collecting two hits a piece. Allonte Wingate and Schmittou scored one run each, with Crowder and Gross scoring two each.
Jeff Lindgren started for Madisonville on the mound and scattered six hits over 6.33 innings but also allowed six runs (four earned) before giving way to Justin Whitley on the top of the seventh. Whitley finished on the mound, pitching 2.66 scoreless innings while allowing just two hits, one walk, and striking out five Hoppers. Lindgren took the Loss.
Logan Jarvis led Madisonville offensively, collecting two of the Miners’ three hits on the night, scoring one run, and driving in one run. Daniel Jackson drove in the other Madisonville run. Complete
County Bomber 10, Paducah Chiefs 2. (From
Dubois County) Badly in need of a win after a seven-game losing streak, Ian Dimitrie Connor Moroder, and Conner Echols led the way as the Dubois County Bombers downed the Paducah Chiefs 10-2 last night.
675 fans filed into historic League Stadium and witnessed the Bombers score in four straight innings early in the contest. Aided by wildness on the part of the Chiefs pitching staff, Dubois County scored two in the second, three in the third, added a run in the fourth, and struck for four more in the fifth to claim a 10-0 lead.
Zack Gray and Connor Echols walked and were driven in by Michael Rodriguez and Ben Balgaard in the second inning. Repeating the script, Gray and Echols walked again in the third. This time, Moroder launched a drive to the center field side of the right field scoreboard for his second home run of the season, stretching the lead to 5-0 after three innings.
In the fourth, Echols walked for the third time in as many innings, forcing in a run in the bases loaded situation. The Bombers final runs were also aided by three walks as four runs scored in the fifth inning, highlighted by an Echols double.
Dimitrie started and pitched seven innings for the Bombers. He scattered six hits, but did not walk a batter, only allowing two baserunners past second base.
The Chiefs managed two runs off of Bomber reliever Fabian Reyes in the eighth, spurred by a Cole Womack double and a triple off the bat of Nathan Williams.
Kevin Forde came out of the Bomber bullpen to pitch the ninth, striking out the side in impressive fashion.
Dimitrie goes to 3-0 on the season. Bryce Wilz takes the loss for the Chiefs.
The Bombers close out the first half of the season with a record of 11-10. Paducah falls to 7-15.
Dubois County is back in action at League Stadium tonight, hosting the Muhlenberg County Stallions. First pitch is at 7 PM.

Hoppers 2, Dubois County Bombers 0. (From
Dubois County) The high-flying Hopkinsville Hoppers made the long trek to League Stadium in Huntingburg, Indiana to take on the Bombers last night. 1,840 Dubois County fans turned out amid the mid-90s heat and humidity for the titanic struggle between the defending champions and the current league leaders.
These two squads squared off in three memorable battles earlier in the season. The first matchup was a 1-1 pitchers’ duel through 8 innings. A doubleheader last weekend produced an extra-inning walkoff homer followed by an 18-13 slugfest. Each game landed with the Hoppers getting the W.
Last night was no exception. Once again, the starting pitchers took center stage.
In last night's affair, Chase Maddux (son of Greg) scattered six Dubois County singles while shutting out the home squad through eight innings of work. The Hoppers defense combined with Maddux for a fundamentally clean game, allowing no Bombers to reach via error, walk, or hit batter.
Meanwhile, Caleb Wagner and Raunel Perez responded with outstanding mound effort of their own for Dubois County. Wagner pitched the first six innings, yielding just two runs on five hits to the hard-hitting Hoppers who average 9.5 runs per game. Perez held the Hoppers scoreless and hitless over the final three frames.
But Hopkinsville pushed two runs across in the fourth inning, and made them stand up on this night. A leadoff walk and a fielder’s choice where the Bombers were unable to cut down the lead runner put two on with nobody out. Grant Robbins singled in Andrew Gross. Kyle O’Keefe followed with a double to plate Hunter Holland.
After that, the pitchers for both teams dominated. Hopkinsville only pushed one more runner to third. Dubois County was never able to advance a player past second base.
O’Keefe led the Hoppers offense with a pair of base hits. Ben Balgaard rapped three singles for the Bombers. Trey Fulton added a single and a double.
Maddux improves to 2-1 for the season. Austin Hearn picks up his first save, holding the Bombers in check after giving up a leadoff double to Fulton in the ninth inning.
The loss drops Wagner to 2-1.
Hopkinsville is now 20-2, and leads the league by at least a week’s worth of games. Dubois County falls to an even .500 at 10-10, dropping their seventh consecutive game. Complete
