Huntingburg (NNDC) – A crowd of 17oo was on hand at League Stadium for a night of baseball and fireworks.

The game was a quasi-double header as Dubois County and Henderson first completed a game suspended from last Friday.  The Bombers started out leading 2-0 as the game picked up in the top of the fourth.  A five-run Flash eighth proved to be the difference in a 9-8 win.  The Bombers scored four in the bottom of the ninth, but came up a run short when Craig Shepherd struck out swinging with the bases loaded.  The loss was the Bombers first at home this season in thirteen games. (CLICK HERE FOR BOX SCORE)

The evening was highlighted by a check presentation of $10,000 to Bombers Endowment Fund.  The check was presented by the “League of Their Own” 25th Anniversary Celebration Committee with proceeds raised last month during events surrounding the anniversary of the filming of the movie in Huntingburg.

The Bombers are now 21-5 for the season and atop of the Ohio Valley Conference Eastern Division by eight games over second place Henderson.  Dubois County heads to Western Division-leading Hopkinsville this evening.  The game will be televised LIVE on NewsNow Dubois County beginning at 7:30pm EST.  The game will be followed by a fireworks show which will also be televised.
