Railroaders resume with Pirates tonight

Man the cannons, Pirates sailing our way
We missed out on baseball with the Bobcats last night because the rain.  That game has been rescheduled for next Monday, July 22. That now means 10 games in 10 days to close out the regular season.  Only Fulton and Marion were unable to get their game in.  First place Hoppers and third place Pirates both won their games last evening against the Oilers and Bombers.  The Railroaders are now wedged in second place between the Hoppers (4 games ahead) and the Pirates (2 games behind).  Both team also have 10 games remaining with each having a doubleheader to play tomorrow.

Tonight though, the Railroaders must face off with the Pirates at the Yard.  This game a make-up from the rain out on July 6.  The Railroaders have 4 of their remaining 10 games against the Pirates.  No need to say how important every one of them is, starting with tonight's contest.  The Pirates have won 3 straight and indeed to make it 4 tonight.  One of them boasted last time before the game was called, that the Buc had a surprise for us and predicted a 6-3 win for Madisonville.  Was the surprise the rain?  The game stopped with a 3-1 Railroader lead, I guess they's planned to score 5 more big ones on us.

We shall see tonight how it turns out.  Both teams have met 5 times this year with the Railroaders 3-2 against the Pirates, and both have a lot to play for.  The Railroaders would still like to de-throne the Hoppers but need to remain in second to even have a chance.  The Pirates wouldn't mind taking out the Hoppers too, but they have to get past the Railroaders to do it.   One thing for sure, it's going to be a heck of the game tonight at Yard, hope you can get out to see it and support the Railroaders!

  5. Hearing you great from sunny Bremerton and our 82 degree temps! (We just don't have the humidity to go with it!)

  6. Actually under MLB rules the game would be resumed. But to drive that far to play six innings doesn't make sense either. after all its for the cause, that's really what matters. I can honestly say I don't see one fault with your program. We are very thankful for giving our son a great life long memory within a structured environment. We are doing everything we can to come back down soon.

    2. Agree with you on the program! Been a great and fun summer of baseball and they will all take home lots of great memories. Thanks to all involved for all your hardwork for these college boys to play summer ball. Wish we could have been at more games, but thanks for the online broadcast.

  8. We've been 18 days with rain in the greater Seattle area and it's not uncommon for the weather to stay like this into September!

  12. Burton should have a sac bunt in seventh (no at bat) with error on pitcher...unless the play at second would have been routine
