Oilers and Railroaders tonight

Although the rain has come through the Yard this morning, the heat of the afternoon will dry things out for the Railroaders and Oilers for tonight’s game. With two games left, the task before the Railroaders is simple. Winning today and tomorrow ensures Fulton at least the second standing for the regular season.

Tomorrow the Railroaders will finish the season at home with the Hoppers and the Miners will host the Bombers to complete the regular season. If the Railroaders win their final two and the Miners beat the Bombers, Fulton will take the regular season pennant.  The Railroaders and Miners would tie with the same 26-14 record and are also tied with the first tiebreaker with a head-to-head 5-5 record.  However, the second tiebreaker would come into play with the Railroaders taking the title having scored 53 runs against the Bombers who have scored 43 against the Railroaders.

It is possible for the Railroaders to tie with the Miners in second place. Should that occur the Miners would take second having beaten the Railroaders 6-4 head-to-head during the season. The Railroaders magic number to secure the second seed is 2, any combination of 2 Railroader wins and/or Miners losses.

Tight race no doubt and the action at the Yard for tonight and tomorrow will be intense.  If you’re in the area we hope you can make it to both games as the Railroaders dash towards the finish line.  Time to “Fire it Up” and go into the Post Season on a high note.  See you at the Yard or online TeamLine.

  17. Thank you jacob elliot, without that 4th run, rain would have meant 4-3 final, now rain means a suspended game because they scored in the top of this inning and we have not recieved equal outs, so reverts to score at the last completed inning, since that was 4-4, likely suspended if rain continues. I guess we should also thank the umps for the timely lightening delay, since you mentioned lightening a few times before the actual delay. Had we completed the inning and not answered the 2 runs, we would be looking at a loss, if we could not continue. Did you say earlier that they were short handed tonight? A delay cant help their pitching situation

  18. In a Rain delay at the Yard.....field is covered....now we wait ...in the middle of the seventh inning. Its a 6-4 Oilers lead at this point

  19. If suspended it would resume at point of delay, they would not be allowed to add any players to lineup card. They would gain slight advantage if its Wednesday, as their current pitcher would likely be able to give them more with a days rest. Should we restart after an hour plus delay, its really not ever good to send a pitcher back to the mound in that situation.
