Hoptown Holds off Bombers, Now 8-0

The Hoptown scored six runs in the first two innings and held off a late Dubois County rally to win 6-3 and claim their eighth straight win to start the season.  The eight-game winning streak is two wins shy of the Ohio Valley League record the Hoppers set last year.

First baseman Ben Fisher had two of Hoptown's four hits and drove in a pair of runs, and second baseman Sean Brophy had a hit and an RBI.

Evan Tidwell got the win with five innings of four-hit work while striking out four.  Trevor Blocker got the final out for the save after Dubois County scored twice in the ninth to make things interesting.

Hoptown has now won eight of their 11 meetings with the Bombers, including five of six at historic League Stadium.

The unbeaten Hoppers will visit the winless Madisonville Miners tonight at Elmer Kelley Stadium in Madisonville. The Hoppers have won seven straight vs. Madisonville dating back to last season.
