One Step at a Time

Last night’s sweep of the doubleheader against the Stallions and the Miners loss to the Flash moves the Railroaders up in the West standings to 3rd seed by a half game. Next we play the 2nd place Chiefs who are 3 games ahead of the Railroaders.

The Chiefs will be tough to beat after they took down the RiverDawgs last night in Owensboro. Paducah still has eyes on the first seed in the West only 2 games behind the leading Hoppers. Speaking of the Hoppers, our Railroaders will have to play them tomorrow, Sunday, in Fulton as well.

With only 5 games left in the regular season now, the road ahead is a difficult one. The Chiefs tonight, Hoppers tomorrow, Monday on the road to Muhlenberg and the last home game on Tuesday with the Hoppers again. The Railroaders end the season in Henderson on Wednesday with the Flash.

Although mathematically the top seed is still possible, realistically a secured 3rd seed and even a 2nd seed are more attainable. The Railroaders will have play hard and hope for some help to place higher. The Playoffs loom ahead and begin next Friday. The final weeks of baseball are before us, let’s fire it up!
