Climbing the latter safely

The rest of this week is going to be interesting as we climb the latter up the standings. Both tonight and tomorrow we face the Pirates; Thursday in Madisonville and Friday in Fulton. The Bucs have climbed into 2nd over the last couple days and have 3 straight wins under their belt. With a current record of 11-9 they've surpassed the Bobcats who have dropped 6 games in a row and have an identical record as we do at 10-11. 

On Saturday night the Railroaders travel to Marion for a single game with the Bobcats. They take Thursday off before going to Owensboro on Friday to slip and slid with the Oilers, whom I'm sure are waiting to beat them down again. And speaking of the Oilers, they are hosting the Hoppers on Thursday who are beginning to show signs of a few broken springs in they step.

Long story short, the Railroaders appear to have a full head stream now with 5 consecutive wins. They are playing their strengths to overcome weak areas which have started to improve. The guys are playing smart and cashing in on opportunities when they arise. That's Railroader baseball at it's best, and we're about to see more of it.

"Fire it Up, Boys!"   

UPDATE: With the win on Thursday, we've climbed to 3rd, tonight another game with the Pirates and a chance to step up to 2nd. Let's go get 'em!

Let's Tame the Cats

Four times the Railroaders have faced the Bobcats this season and each has resulted in a loss for Fulton. Tonight the Railroaders will go at it again with the Cats at the Yard and attempt to reverse this terrible trend. With a current record of 10-8, the Bobcats are on a 3 game losing streak and sit in 2nd place 3 games behind the Hoppers.  The Railroaders have won 3 straight and appear to be on the right track as the train is now rolling with a full head steam. Both teams are pretty evenly matched with the exception of team pitching ERA; Marion stands better with 3.40 earned runs allowed and Fulton is averaging 5.15 per game. This is the chance for the Railroaders to get with it and ring in the Cats with a win. The half way point of the season will occur tonight for the Railroaders as they complete game 20 for 2012.  It's going to a hot one at the Yard but so are the Railroaders. Should be another good game and I, for one, am looking forward to it. Can our boys figure out the Cats?  I think so and I'll be there to see it!

Burning oil tonight

The Railroaders are fired up and the Oilers burning mad. After a win in Owensboro last night, Fulton moves up a slot in the standing, but only by a half game. The Oilers are coming to town tonight for another game against the Railroaders at the Yard. Our boys have won 2 straight and will play to extend their winning streak. 

The top 2 teams, Hoppers and Bobcats, will be going at it in Marion. We'll need a victory tonight to retain our 4th place position and keep pace with the leaders. We will reach the halfway point of our season tomorrow night, at home again, playing the Bobcats. Two critical games for the Railroaders and I'm feeling pretty good about how they a beginning to preform. We need everyone available to come out tonight and tomorrow in support of our team. The fire in their eyes is bright and we're expecting another great game of baseball.

We'll be on TeamLine if you can't make it to game, but it will be much better live at the Yard. Let's go Railroaders!

UPDATE: The Hoppers took down the Bobcats 9-2, game started at 2 pm.
