Bombers return to the Yard

The Bombers land into the Yard today for their second season meeting with the Railroaders. The first game, last Wednesday, they attacked Fulton with 18 hits that produced a defeat for the Railroaders who mustered a 5 run score. We need to be ready to shoot them down before they drop their bombs.

The Railroaders could use a win now having lost their last 5 games. The issue doesn’t seem to be at the plate. In those 5 games, the Railroaders have had 43 hits (8.6 game avg) yielding at total of 29 runs (5.6 avg). These are numbers good enough to win.

On the flip slide, it’s another story. In our 5 losses we have allowed 65 hits (13 per game) and given up 55 runs (11 per game). 10 total errors didn’t help either. No doubt these numbers will have to change if we are to move up in the standings. I hate to say it, but a team pitching average of 8.283 ERA isn’t going to hack it.

We are at home tonight though, and with a 5-3 home record in our favor. It would nice to get a victory before a Monday day off. We need Fan support for sure. See you at Yard or on Teamline.
