The Hoppers fought their hardest, and nearly defeated the Dubois County Bombers, but fell short in the tenth inning 10-9.
The Hoppers trailed by 6 in the fourth inning, but RBI’s from Nick Proto, Cord Johnson, Blake Jackson, Aidan Elias, and Matt Keane helped the team rally and tie the score. The Bombers and Hoppers continued to trade off the lead, but eventually the scoring stalled at 9-9, with the Bombers pulling ahead for good after grounding into a Fielder’s Choice in the top of the tenth. Jaxon Herchenbach took the loss for the Hoppers, going 1/3 of an inning, allowing one run on one hit and walking 0.
The Hoppers had one home run (2RBI) from Aidan Elias in the first, which put the Hoppers on the board with the initial lead of 2-0.
