UC would rather forget 1st trip to Fulton after rout
The Union City Greyhounds might just as soon forget their first outing against the Fulton Railroaders.
In a game shortened to eight innings by rain in the area, the ’Hounds were drubbed 15-4 at Lohaus Field Monday night.

After that, Union City, which has lost five of its last six games, returns to the confines of Elam Stadium Thurday night for a three-game series against the Owensboro Oilers.
On Tuesday, the Railroaders struck for three runs in the first and second innings, six in the third and three in the fourth during Monday’s triumph.

Reliever Miles Scribner did not fare any better as he was hit for six runs during just an inning of work.
Brad Davis then entered the game and stopped the bleeding.
He was charged with three unearned runs during his four-inning stint on the mound.
Offensively, the Greyhounds’ bats did come alive in the top of the sixth inning.
First baseman Ryan O’Gara drew a walk to lead off the inning with Trey Horn singling and Justin Miller getting hit by a pitch to load the bases for Ace Williams.
