in season opener

The Railroaders scored one run in the top of the seventh inning to take a 5-4 lead, taking advantage of the only Bomber error in the game.
The Bombers failed to score in the bottom half of the seventh but went to work in the eighth inning. After the lead-off batter reached on a single, former Railroader Rick Linton ripped a two-run homer that hit the leftfield scoreboard.
DC finished the inning adding another run on a wild pitch.
Dubois County sent closer Clint Chestnut in to finish off Fulton’s final three batters in the ninth, getting the save in relief of winner Johnathan Williams. Sean Cunningham took the loss for Fulton.
