Memorial Weekend Was Definitely Memorable

GARY, Ind.- This is turning out to be an exciting season to say the least. Memorial weekend was definitely memorable for the Gary RailCats who swept their series with the Schaumburg Flyers and won their fifth straight game this season against one of the top two teams from 2004. The pitching was excellent and the hitting came through to combine for the three game sweep over the Schaumburg Flyers. With Monday an off day, Tuesday will see the RailCats up against the Northern League Champion 2004 Saint Paul Saints who will be eager for a win after loosing two games to Kansas City over the weekend.

Kansas City ultimately came up against the Saints over the weekend to win 2 of 3 games with the final game of the series 6-4 in front of over 7,000 Northern League baseball fans and the host of ESPN's 'Cold Pizza' . They head back to Kansas City to begin a 9 game home stand where they'll face Lincoln, Schaumburg and Calgary.
