4, Railroaders 0. (July
1, 2015) (From
Dubois County) Regular Bomber fans are well familiar with the team's sluggers. However, some may have missed the fact that the Dubois County mound staff have put up some pretty impressive outings of their own. Last night's game by Zachary Aring may have been the most impressive of the season.
The Dubois County Bombers hosted the Fulton Railroaders in a showdown of the top two teams in the Ohio Valley League last night. For the second straight night, the Bombers rode a complete game shutout to a victory, downing the Railroaders 4-0.
After Ryan Dills shut out the Oilers Tuesday in a seven-inning doubleheader contest, Zachary Aring went the distance in last night’s victory. They were the first two shutouts of the season for the Bombers hurlers who have held opponents to a single run on six other occasions.
Aring held the league’s most potent offense to four singles, walking only two batters while striking out seven. Only one Railroader managed to advance as far as second base all night.
Aring also helped his cause with his glove, turning in three defensive gems. In the sixth, he started a double play on a sharply hit comebacker to the mound. In the eighth, he snared a liner that was destined for center field for the first out, and then made a reflexive catch on a one-hopper, tossing to first for the third out.
The Bombers threatened in almost every inning, putting runners in scoring position in six different frames.
After sitting out the last few games with a minor injury, Drake McNamara opened the second inning with a single, and came in to score on a hit by Mark
Dubois County added two in the third inning. Daniel Johnson led off with a single and scored when Morgan DePew followed with another. A one-out base hit by McNamara gave Aring a 3-0 cushion.
Johnson doubled in the home seventh, and scored on a Nick Gobert single, making the score 4-0.
McNamara finished at 4-for-4, Gobert 3-for-3, and Johnson doubled twice to lead the 13-hit Bomber attack. Clay Reece had two of Fulton's hits.
Aring’s seven strikeouts ties him with Fulton starting pitcher Charlie Hecht for the league lead with 33 strikeouts on the season. Both pitchers records now stand at 3-2.
Dubois County runs their winning streak to four games. It is their third string of four or more wins thus far in the season. Their league-best record improves to 18-8. Fulton falls to 15-11. The Railroaders drop into a tie for third with the idle Madisonville

6, Railroaders 2. (June
30, 2015) Both the Miners (14-10) and Railroaders (15-10) matched with 9 hits and 2 errors each, but Madisonville made better use of their offense to extend their winning streak to 4 straight games. The Railroaders’ 6-2 loss at home broke a 4 game winning streak for Fulton and places the Miners only a ½ behind the second place Railroaders. Both teams also matched in leaving 8 runners on base.
The Miners took a 1-0 lead in the 2nd inning. Matt Walsh singled, stole 2nd and made home on a Wesley Birchmeier RBI single.
Madisonville extended their lead in the 3rd inning scoring 2 more runs. Gabe Franlkin reached on an error followed by a walk for Connor Moss. Both advanced a base on a sacrifice bunt then scored on a 2 RBI single from Nolan Ramsey.
The Railroaders finally got on the board in the in the 5th inning. RBI singles by Clay Reece and Brad Baldwin drove in two runners that had reached base on 2 Miner errors. The score now 3-2 in Madisonville’s favor.
The Miners piled on 3 insurance runs in the 8th inning. Shane Connahan doubled to begin the inning and went to third on a sacrifice bunt. Wesley Birchmeier then reached first on a infield grounder that was fielded and held to hold the runner at third base. A walk then loaded the bases allowed for a Gabe Franklin RBI ground out for one scored followed up by a 2 RBI single from Connor Moss. The final score was sealed at 6-2.
Starter Mathias Brewers earned the win for a good performance on the mound for 6 1/3 innings. He gave up 8 hits for 2 runs (one earned), had only 1 walk and struck out 8 batters. Nicholas Purpera and Colin Hudson closed out the game for Madisonville.
The loss goes to Logan Parrett who went for 6 innings. He allowed only 5 hits, 3 runs (2 earned), 2 walks and 3 strikeouts. Chandler Amason, Kyle Estand, and Trey Tigart combined for the final 3 innings giving up 4 hits, 3 runs (2 earned), 3 walks and 2 strikeouts.

Youth Baseball Camp planned. Thanks to popular demand, Manager Mikee Moore and Pitching Coach Tyler Saltsman
have decided to offer a SECOND EDITION of YOUTH BASEBALL CAMP. The camp will begin on
Monday, July 13th at 9:00 a.m. The camp is for ages
This year, the Railroaders are having trouble at regular games with getting kids who “shag” fouled balls to return them. Therefore, we are running short of baseballs. As a result, the “campers” at this
second baseball camp will not be given a free baseball,
however, the cost of the camp is reduced from $25.00 to $20.00 to compensate for the change.
Please feel free to pass this
info along to others who may know budding baseball stars
that would like to spend a morning with Coach Moore and his roster of college baseball athletes.
