8, Railroaders 7. (July
26, 2016) (From Owensboro)
The Owensboro Oilers won their single elimination game hosting the Fulton Railroaders at Apollo High School's Eagle Park for Round 1 of the 2016 OVL playoffs. The Oilers claimed the game 8 to 7, scoring three runs without an out in the bottom of the 9th inning.
Fulton scored first with four runs in the top of the 3rd inning. Andrew
Holderman, Jacob Milosch, Alex Phillips, and Chase Slone all crossed the plate on four Railroader hits and a hit batter.
Owensboro answered with five runs to take the lead in the bottom of the 4th inning. Nick Lugo, Seth Woodard, Mitch Wilson, Joe Silva, and Ben Haefner each crossed the plate on three hits, a defensive error, and a hit batter.
The Railroaders pulled even with a run in the top of the 6th inning. With one away, Mason Elliot doubled. He moved to third base on a shallow single by Derek Burns. Zach Bishop brought Elliot in on a RBI ground out. Heading to the bottom of the 6th inning the game was tied.
The score remained deadlocked at 5 to 5 until the top of the 9th inning. With one out, Milosch drew a walk and Phillips hit a two-run home run to extreme right field. The blow gave the Railroaders a 7 to 5 advantage. It also left the Oilers with just three outs to go in 2016.
Haefner led off the bottom of the 9th inning with a walk. Pinch hitter Joe Stucky blooped a single barely into right field. Tanner Kehrer placed a bunt down the third base line with no one covering first base. The bases were loaded. Sam Medina reached on a misplayed slow infield grounder as Haefner scored. Bryce Windham RBI walked, plating Stucky as the tying run. Nick Lugo capped the comeback with a hard ground ball fielded on a dive by the second baseman. The fielder did the only thing he could do in the situation -- he attempted a throw to home plate from his back. Kehrer scored ahead of it, and the Oilers won.
The winning pitcher for Owensboro was reliever Hector
Marmal, the pitcher of record when the Oilers took the winning lead.
The losing pitcher for Fulton was Knox Faulkner.

6, Railroaders 5 - game 1. (July
20, 2016) A sudden downpour of rain in Fulton lasting an hour before the 5 p.m. doubleheader start forced the Railroaders and Chiefs to move their games to the University of Tennessee at Martin's Skyhawks Park. Both teams and crews moved quickly ten miles south and began the first game play at 7 p.m. central time.

16, Railroaders 3. (July
19, 2016) (From
Dubois County) Due to heavy intervention by Mother Nature in recent weeks, the latter part of the OVL season has turned into a battle of attrition for much of the league’s pitching staffs. Having played seven games in five days, and faced with another double header today, the Fulton Railroaders’ mound corps was working quite short-handed when they rolled into Dubois County last night.
The Bombers relief staff has been similarly overworked following seven games in the prior four days. Little relief was in sight (see what we did there?) with no scheduled days off until Friday.
The key for the evening was going to be who could get to the opponent’s bullpen first. Dubois County answered the bell early and often, scoring three times in the second inning and adding four more in the fourth to KO Fulton starter Hunter Smith. The Bombers went on to score in every inning for the rest of the game, cruising to a 16-3 triumph.
For the Bombers, Kyle Matter stepped out of the bullpen for just his second start of the season, and turned in a solid five innings to stake his squad to an 11-2 lead before turning it over to his bullpen mates.
Both teams used multiple position players on the mound. First Baseman Mark Giesler and outfielder Buddy Johnson both contributed a scoreless inning of relief, even though it was the first time either had pitched this season.
The Railroaders were also forced to press position players into mound service, but the Dubois County bats were too much on this night, blasting their way to a 19-hit barrage.
Matthew Poland, Ben Balgaard, and Johnson had three hits apiece. Paul Salata had a pair of singles for Fulton.
The win is Matter’s first decision of the season. Smith is charged with the Fulton loss. He is now 2-4.
Fulton returns home for a double-header against Paducah tonight. The Bombers close out the three-day home stand by hosting Muhlenberg County. Complete box scores Click
12, Railroaders 10. (July
18, 2016) The Oilers broke an extra inning tied game to win over the Railroaders in Fulton. Owensboro had 11 hits total, left 10 men on base and had 3 game errors. Fulton totaled 13 hits, stranded 9 runners and committed 2 errors.
Owensboro jumped to an early 3-0 lead in the first inning. Both teams scored a single run in the third. The Oilers added another run in the fourth and the Railroaders answered in the bottom half putting up 4 runs to tie the game at 5 each.
In the top of the fifth inning Owensboro retook the lead scoring 2 runs, but Fulton answered quickly in the bottom half scoring 3 runs to take an 8-7 lead.
The Oilers proceeded to score single runs in the sixth through eighth innings to take a 10-8 lead. In the bottom half of the eighth the Railroaders tied the game again with 2 scores. Both teams were held scoreless in the ninth inning.
Top of the tenth, lead off batter Nick Lugo made first base hit by pitch. Seth Woodard followed with a 2 RBI homerun to give Owensboro the lead once more. Hector Marmal, in his second inning of relief, then retired the Railroaders with three straight strikeouts to take the win for the Oilers.
Woodard led the Oilers going 3-for-6 with 3 RBI and scoring 2 runs. Lugo was 1-for-2, walked 3 times, stole 4 bases and crossed the plate 4 times to help the effort.
For the Railroaders; Chase Slone 3-for-6 with 3 RBI and one score, Paul Salata went 3-for-4 with 3 RBI and one score, and Tyler Catlett was 3-for-4 and scored 3 runs.

For Muhlenberg, Mark Treadway led the way going 4-for-5 with 3 RBI and one score. Jarrett Harness was 2-for-6 with 3 RBI. Justin Ware went 2-for-5, scored twice and had a 2 RBI triple.

7 innings. (From Dubois County) The Dubois County Bombers opened a double-header sweep of the Fulton Railroaders with a 6-0 victory. If the highlight was a complete game shutout performance by Renton Poole, the lowlight was a one-hour-plus rain delay.
Poole limited the visitors to three hits and didn’t walk a batter. He struck out nine in the seven-inning contest and didn’t allow a single Fulton baserunner to reach second base until there were two down in the seventh.
Zach Gray singled in Macy Holdsworth in the third inning for the Bombers’ first run. Dubois County added four more in the next frame, keyed by a Holdsworth bases-loaded double.
After rains wiped out games the past two nights, the teams again had to battle the elements to get the contest in the books. A heavy rain soaked the area for about fifteen minutes in the fourth inning. The total delay would be over an hour before the field could be made suitable for play.
With water all around, it is only fitting that it was the Poole in the center of the diamond that drew all the attention. Renton Poole’s record improved to 4-1, with a season ERA that drops below 1.00. His 53 strikeouts leads the league.

He eventually came around to score on a Matthew Poland sacrifice fly. Mark Giesler was hit by a pitch when he led off the Dubois County second, and scored on a Miles Hardy double.
A two-run third inning for Fulton tied the game in a rally fueled by hits by Andrew Swanson and Mason Elliott.
