Final Stretch Rundown


Another tough loss to Hoptown last night, but not all is lost.  The Railroaders have 9 games left in the regular season with 7 of those games at home in the Yard beginning tonight with the Miners.  The next 11 days will see the end of the season play and the Post Season Playoffs will begin the day after on July 23rd.  So the action over the next week and a half will be heating up at the Yard.

Fulton’s 15-16 record and fourth place standing is not entirely hopeless.  The Railroaders are 6 ½ games out of first and only a half game behind the third place Bombers.  Fulton’s 9 remaining games breakout like this:

  • 4 games vs Miners – 3 @ home, 1 away
  • 1 game vs Oilers – away
  • 1 game vs Bombers - @ home
  • 3 games vs Hoppers- all @ home
The Railroaders best chance is to take over the Hoppers 2nd place position.  Fulton is currently 4 games behind Hoptown.  The first task is to move past the Bombers in 3rd and just a half game ahead of the Railroaders.  To achieve a 1st place seed will require winning 7 of 9 games left, and the Oilers must fall flat and loss all their final 8 games remaining.  Not likely!  Of course the Hoppers and Bombers have their own designs and desires to take out the Oilers.

Bottom line here is the Railroaders need to fire the engine up with a good head of steam and get going now!  One win at time is must at this point.  Post Season play is just around the corner and a higher seed is the goal.

  4. What did you guys do to us here on the West Coast? I think you traded weather with us, high 90s - low 100's. That's too hot for me but the audio is coming in clear. I'll be rooting for my favorite DH and the rest of the Tacoma boys as well as all of the RR's. Last night was rough so let's shake it off and play some ball!!

  12. The silent auction is for a great cause but John I was just wondering if the team will be wearing the special jerseys all night so that they will be sweaty if we win them? You can just answer yes or no LOL
