Great Start to the Bombers Season with Victory over Owensboro Riverdawgs
A great crowd of over 1800 were in attendance for the first game of the season as the Bombers got up quickly against long time foe Owensboro Riverdawgs. Owensboro did everything they could to catch up with the bombers then take the lead then the bombers got pretty quiet all the way to the end of the game as Owensboro took over the lead 6 -5. It was no easy feat both teams changed up pitchers including six pitching changes for the Riverdawgs. The end of the game was really exciting as even league stadium tried to settle things down with a light malfunction which took about 20 minutes or so to get them back on but once they did wow did the action pick up. The Bombers tied it up 6 -6 and then it came down to two Bombers that both had a great game Simon Scherry a Santa Claus native play ball at University of Evansville and Huntingburg standout Tucker Shank now playing at IU finished the job for the 7 -6 Victory. The Bombers are on the road Saturday and take on Madisonville game-time 7:30.
