Hoppers at the Yard tonight

After the first three games of the season, it appears our Railroader team doesn't give up. One win and 2 losses so far have all ended with a single run being the difference in the game. They have demonstrated a strong ability to get back into the game, even in the last inning down by 4 or more runs.

Now all we need is our pitchers. That's not to say the current group isn't good, but they are few and must be getting tired. The point being; there are 7 players on the roster who have not shown up yet, and 5 of the 7 are pitchers. To shore up a half-full bullpen, we are having to use position players like Salata, Higdon, & Walker. Did I miss anyone? I've been told there are couple more suppose to show up today, we'll see.  .  

We'll need all hands tonight at the Yard with the Hoppers jumping into the Yard. Our guys hung tough with them last night in Hoptown, just as they did with the Miners. The Hoppers are definitely a force to content with. And after their great season last year and 2 big beatings of the Chefs to start this year, I must confess I was afraid the Railroaders might not be able to stand up to Hoptown. Well, they proved me wrong for sure!

That being said, tonight's game should be a good one. If you don't come out to see it, you may be like those who left on Friday night in the top of the 10th with the Railroaders down 16-10. They missed one of the greatest (in my opinion anyway) comebacks of all time. Just beating the Hoppers would feel as good! Time to get fired up!

  2. A little rain shower earlier saved the Railroaders some water. All is well for baseball with the Hoppers at the yard.
