Battle for # 2 spot tonight

Tonight is the final home regular season game for the Railroaders. With only 5 games remaining, the race in the West standings for 2nd place couldn’t be any tighter. The 1st place Hoppers have secured the West’s top seed. The Chiefs and Railroaders both have 16-19 records; the Chiefs currently hold the tiebreaker having beaten the Railroaders in 4 of 5 head-to-head games. The Miners with a record of 16-20 with only 4 games remaining are trailing only a half game behind us. The 2nd seed for the playoffs is important for Round One Home field advantage.

The Railroaders face off with the Chiefs 3 more times starting tonight a Fulton’s Fan Appreciation Night. There is no need to say how important this game will be. The Railroaders will play the Chiefs again on Sunday and Tuesday, both times in Paducah of course. Fulton’s other 2 games will be one on Monday in Hoptown and on Wednesday in Muhlenberg with the Stallions if necessary.

Fulton has added replacement players for those who have been taken out, mainly in the pitching area. No new players can be signed on after today by any OVL team.

The Post Season is looming ahead and the Railroaders are working hard to secure a higher seed for the Playoffs. We’ll need all hands on deck tonight at the yard to help the Railroaders get back on the winning track after a single loss to the Bombers last night (For note though: we took them out 2 of 3 straight games, no other team can say that).

See you at the Yard or online TeamLine. Let’s roll Railroaders!
