Oilers & Railroaders for 2 games tonight

Both the Railroaders and Oilers are close in the standings.  Along with the Bombers, both teams are fighting towards taking out the first place Hoppers who play the Bombers tonight and have a 2 game lead at the mid-season point.  Tonight at the Yard the Railroaders have a chance to improve over everyone with a doubleheader evening.

The Oilers like to run the bases with 58 stolen on the year and have played two less games than the Railroaders who have 38 bases taken.  The Railroaders have the bats though with a .263 team average while the Oilers come in with a .225 thus far.  Fulton has 6 active players above or near .300 in average, the Oilers best hitter is at .286.  No comparison in homeruns either as Fulton totals 23 and the Owensboro with only 3.  Railroader pitching is better at a team ERA of 2.67 and the Oilers at 2.99.  Still the Oilers win on Sunday shows they have what it take to get it done.  However, so do the Railroaders who have come back from a 5-10 start to win 8 of the last 9 games played.

Tonight is time for the Railroaders to get it going again, and at the Yard.  The other OVL games are single contest for today, so the Railroaders can move ahead with a sweep of 2 games over the Oilers.  Let's Fire It UP, Guys!!!!!

  4. Actually got all sides of the Navy covered. As a retired Hull Tech, I took care of the submariners for over half my career either teaching them emergency welding or fixing subs to make sure they could make it home. Spent 5 1/3 years on CVN-70 teaching damage control to the airdales and marines along with all my other duties. My wife took care of the reservists in all forms over her 20 years too.

    Did we miss anyone?

  6. She is a Retired YNC. Did active duty for 11 1/2 years, finishing in the reserves. Was stationed on Coronado working surface fleet for type desk officers. Then SIMA Alameda before moving next door to NAVAIRRES Alameda taking care of the reservists, learning how crazy good the pilots are. When I transferred up to Bangor she came up and was stationed at Naval Reserve Station Tacoma to finish her active duty time. She spent her reserve time at Bangor with SubGroup9.
