Big Bomber Battle tonight

The first place Bombers were successful in beating the Railroaders the last time they flew into the Yard this past Monday.  The Railroaders have faced off with the Bombers four times so far with the Railroaders only taking one of the games.  It is time to turn that trend around tonight at the Yard.  At 2 ½ games behind the Bombers, the second place Railroaders have a chance to gain a game with a win this evening.

There was lots of rain yesterday but the field in Fulton should be dry by game time for the showdown.  The Railroaders need to man the fighters early this time and shoot down the DC planes before they extend their lead in the standings.  This will be the third visit to the Yard by the Bombers, and the Railroaders yet to get a win against them in front of the hometown Fans.  We have the Top Guns for the job, we just need to use them and eliminate the errors.

The Bombers may play in the biggest stadium in the OVL, but on the field they are just another team.  Two of the three Railroader losses with the Bombers were by a single run so it should be a close one, however I prefer blasting them out of the sky at the plate for an overwhelming victory.  We can get done and need the help of all hands, both on the field and in the stands.  Let’s man-up and shoot down some Bombers. I’ll see you at the Yard tonight or join us on TeamLine.

UPDATE 10:45 a.m.:  I've gone to the Yard and it's looking good. The sun is beginning to pop out of the clouds that should be clearing out around noon time.  The Ground Crew is out and working the few remaining wet spots remaining, "Hats off to them."   With the temperature rising, all looks well for tonight's contest . . the game is on!
