Dubois County scored a pair in the first inning. A Logan Brown sacrifice fly in the fourth cut the Oiler lead to 5-3. From then on, the Oilers were in full control.

The Bombers stranded nine baserunners, but managed to do so in just three innings, leaving the bases loaded in the first, third, and eighth innings.

Seven different Oilers scored and eight tallied RBIs in a balanced offensive effort that was aided by six Bomber walks, three hit batters, and
four errors.

Dubois County falls to 10-7. They travel to Madisonville tonight. The next Bomber home game is Sunday when they host the first-place Hopkinsville Hoppers.
