Showdown with Miners tonight

Tonight at the Yard, our second place Railroaders with a record of 15-9 will face off with the third place Miners with a record of 13-10.  Both teams are working on consecutive game winning streaks, the Railroaders with 4 straight wins and the Miners with 3 in a roll. That will continue for only one of them after tonight’s action. The Railroaders are 1½ games ahead of the Miners, so regardless of the outcome tonight, Fulton will finish the evening retaining the second place spot.

From a league prospective, the Railroaders are currently a ½ game behind the first place Bombers. The Bombers are on the road to Owensboro for a big doubleheader with the Oilers who have lost their last 4 games. The results of those games could greatly affect the standings. Meanwhile the Hoppers are off today and have dropped 5 games in the row. Both Hoppers and Oilers for 7 ½ games out of first. Still almost half the season to go, every game from now on will be important for all teams.

Back to the Railroaders and Miners for tonight.  The teams have met 6 times so far with 4 games left head-to-head.  Each team has won 3 games against each other, that tie will be broke today. Season stats show both teams match fairly even match with the Railroaders’ somewhat ahead in the numbers on offense and pitching. Head-to-head, the Miners have slight edge against the Railroaders on offense in batting average, but the Railroaders are better from the mound with about half the team ERA as the Miners.

  5. Hi John, that's ironic you're talking about the dropped third strike because I was confused and had to text my resident translator. You may know him, Mr Reed Johnson. I was also wondering if you have a total of the $$ raised for Leigha? You gotta love those Roaders for their charitable contributions. Let's have a great game tonight gentlemen!

  11. Huge fire in central WA near Wenatchee that were actually threatening the city. Also several smaller fires here in OR. There was a massive thunder and lightning storm here Sunday night and I'm sure some fires were started by that. It is very dry here, drought conditions
