Railroaders vs Bombers at the Yard

The 1-1 Railroaders will be looking for their first Home Win tonight against the 0-2 Bombers who’ll be trying to find their first win in 2014.  The Railroaders will finally have their full roster tonight and with one win under the belt we’ll see if the momentum will carry on.  I’m sure the Bombers would love to spoil things so it should be a good game. 

Looking at the early standings, and considering several games rained out, it is somewhat clear how the rankings are shaping up.  The 4-0 Hoppers seems to have their act together, as usual, and have the early lead.  I’m sure their strategy is to jump out early, get a 4+ lead over the second place team and stay there.  Its something they have done well every year since joining the OVL two years ago.

The Railroaders usually start slow losing too many games early on and come on strong before mid-season.  This year’s 1-1 start is the best since 2010 while in the old KIT league.  A stronger start this year should put us in a better position to catch and over take the Hoppers before regular season ends.

The 2-1 Oilers are certainly proving to be what is expected, a tough team to beat.  The Railroaders take on the Oilers this Saturday at the Yard, the next home game.  The two teams have a doubleheader next Thursday in Owensboro to make up the rainout from Monday.

The 0-2 Bombers and 0-3 Miners are struggling some getting out of the gate.  I’m sure they’ll find themselves soon, and when they do the pressure will be on for every team. Yes, its still early and anything can happen.  I just hope to see more lead changes this year than previous ones.


  1. Let's go Railroaders! Listening to the audio from the Mississippi Gulf Coast!

  2. Good Luck Railroaders from Medina, Ohio! Parents of #21 Tyler Nichols!

  3. The video works just fine, but can't see first or third base. If there was any way to zoom out, that would be awesome!

  4. Thanks for your kind words about Rick Linton. He really enjoyed his time in Fulton but couldn't turn down the opportunity to play closer home and in his home state. - Scott and Lori Linton. PS - Always good to hear y'all doing your broadcast thing.

  5. Good luck Bombers from Savannah, GA! I believe the Giesler's are cousins. - Carol Lightle

  6. Coming in loud and clear from Hood River, OR! I really appreciate the audio stream so I can root for the Tacoma players as well as the rest of the Railroaders. #RollTrain
