July 4th game with Oilers

We Want You at the Yard!
It was just a year ago today on the 4th of July the Railroaders hosted the Oilers for a holiday game in the Yard. That victory went to the Oilers on a 4-2 score. The Railroaders don’t plan to repeat history this evening in an early start game at 5:30 pm with a concert and fireworks to follow. A big crowd is expected with free general admission for the first 300 persons attending, thanks to Fulton Tourism Commission.

Both the Railroaders (15-11) and Oilers (7-17) are rested after 2 days of non-play. The two teams have met 6 times thus far this season with the Railroaders taking 5 of the 6 games. The Oilers have struggled of late losing 6 straight games before beating the Hoppers (7-17) on Wednesday night. The Railroaders on the other hand have dropped their last 2 games to the Bombers and Miners, moving Fulton into third in the standings 6½ games ahead of the now fourth place Oilers. The first place Bombers (19-8) will host the second place Miners (14-10) in Dubois County tonight.

With only a third of the season left and 3½ games out of first, it is time for the Railroaders to get back on track for the final run. It should be a great night for baseball and celebrating the 4th of July.  Come out and enjoy an All American holiday. See you at the Yard or online TeamLine.
