Miners return to Fulton

The 3rd place Miners return to the Yard tonight to battle with the 2nd place Railroaders.  The two teams have met three times so for this season with the Railroaders taking 2 of 3 games.  The Miners started the season slow by losing their first 4 games before digging themselves out of a hole to win 4 straight games.  Now with their current 5-5 record, the Miners have won 5 of their last 6 games and are force to recon with.

Since their 3-0 season start, the Railroaders are 4-5 for their last 9 games and expect to improve even better at home tonight against the Miners.  Fulton’s pitching appears to be strong with a team 2.54 ERA.  Twice last week, Fulton saw two complete game shutouts pitched by Eddie Mathis (with a current 1.88 ERA) and Charlie Hecht with a 0.00 ERA on the season.  The Railroader defense is playing pretty good ball too.  In the last 5 games this past week, Fulton has won 3 games committing no errors, but did have 4 errors in 2 losses. Over the same 5 games, the Railroaders have 42 hits total and produced 31 runs. Nothing wrong with bats.

The Railroaders are one game behind first place Bombers who host the Oilers tonight in DC.  With the Miners are trailing Fulton by one game, tonight’s action will shake up the tight standings a bit while the fourth place Hoppers are idle.

Game time at 7 pm today.  See you at the Yard or online TeamLine.  Let’s keep the train rolling!
