Powering Up for Round 2 amd Game 2 with Hoppers


The Railroaders find themselves in a familiar position with their backs against the wall after losing an extra innings close game in Hoptown last night.  Trailing 1-0 in the best of three series creates a must win tonight in Fulton if the Railroaders want to continue on the playoffs.  Will we see the Railroaders again on Saturday?  You’ll have to come to the Yard tonight or listen online to find out.

Fulton achieved the second seed and home field advantage in round 2, and now is the time to use it.  You can be sure the Hoppers will bring fans, so we need everyone who is able to come out and support the Railroaders as they attempt to carry on.  Against the Hoppers, Hoptown considers the Railroaders the underdog in spite of Fulton’s second place standing.  The Hoppers do have a much better head-to-head record with the Railroaders, but last year proved they could do it when they were down by a game in the championship series and came back to win two games in Hoptown to win the title.  There’s no reason Fulton can’t do it at the Yard and advance on to the championship round in 2014.

Do or die time now.  Let’s get this engine fired up and roll over the Hoppers tonight!

  1. Wish someone would keep the fans up to date on why some of our better players have disappeared. We needed hitters last night! What has happened to Tyler Marshall, Daniel Goff, and Reed Johnson? Traveled to the game last night expecting to see an effort worthy of the Railroaders tradition, but except for some great pitching, there was under achievement! The Hoppers ran the bases like Little Leaguers and they still won. Somehow we let a runner sneak in from third base on a strikeout.

    1. Marshall is hurt (back), Johnson left last week (home and surgery) and Goff left after the last home game (?). We still have players and hitters, and can get the job done as needed.

  2. Good evening John and Josh! You're coming in loud and clear. I tried to listen to the game in Hopkinsville last night but their audio was terrible so I turned it off. It's a great night for a ball game in The Yard and the RR's need to play like they know how and take this game and continue the road to the championship. My usual shout out to the Tacoma boys Mr Spring, Mr Main, and Mr Vernia #RollTrain
