Let's fix it and get going.

I think it's time to get the engine back on track! The 12 game winning streak was a good ride, but 3 straight losses is enough. Time is running out in the season and it would be nice to get back to the station on time Sunday after a win in Owensboro on Saturday. 

The OVL teams will not go lightly into the good night, so let's pick it up and get the job done. We're 4 1/2 games back of the Hoppers now with the Pirates breathing down our neck on a game behind us.  Big games over the next week. Time to "Fire it Up" like there's no tomorrow!

Big Game Rained Out

Our big game with the Hoppers tonight in the Yard has been postponed as the sky opened up and washed us out. Question now is when? Railroader management is working on it. Sure hope they come up with a good date "At the Yard!" We only have 2 more games with the Hoppers and one of those is in Hoptown.  We want to see the other at home in Fulton  like it should be.

Guess we'll have to wait for the outcome to see what happens next.

UPDATE: We play this game on Sunday, July 15 at 7 pm. In the meantime, the Railroaders hit the road again to Marion on Wednesday, Hoptown on Friday, and Owensboro on Saturday. Next week is the final week of regular season play. Post Season Playoffs to following.

Heading Home for the Bobcats

After a great win in Hoptown, the Railroaders are heading for the Yard to take on the Bobcats tonight. The Cats had a day off yesterday and won their last game over the Oilers on Friday night. Marion has one win in their last six games, and I'm sure they are wanting to take the Railroaders down. However, our Roaders are HOT and I don't mean because of the weather. Another victory tonight and we'll gain a half game on the Hoppers. Baseball in Fulton today will be the only action in the OVL. 
The Railroaders have faced the Bobcats in 6 games thus far this season and have only come away with 2 wins. I say it's time to reverse this trend and take them down. Marion plays tough against us, but we got a team that has really come together over the past 2 weeks.
My road trip is over as well and its time for me to catch a train back to Fulton. Hoptown has been good to me, but I'm looking forward to getting home and a nacho win tonight.  
Fire it Up!

Hey Marlene, do you have anything to add?

Hey Guys,

Do you need me to distract the Cats tonight?
