FULTON -- R.J. Green's bases-loaded single capped a five-run bottom of the ninth inning as the Fulton Railroaders stunned the Paducah Chiefs 7-6 in Monday night Ohio Valley League baseball action from Lohaus Field.

The Chiefs were up 6-2 going into the bottom of the ninth with Stone Selby taking the mound to close it out. Instead, a walk and two singles loaded the bases. Cameron Mitchell scored the first Fulton run in the rally when Chiefs shortstop Blake Johnson made an error. Sam Stohr, who had three hits earlier in the game, lofted a sacrifice fly to left to bring Tyler McCown home. That made it 6-4 Paducah.

Another walk and two hit batters scored another run and forced a pitching change. Isaiah Glidden fared little better in relief. He walked pinch-hitter Austin Jones to allow Kody Davidson to score the tying run before Green's hit capped the comeback.

Paducah built its early lead with great baserunning from Kevin Brenning. In the top of the first, Brenning stole third with an error by Fulton third baseman Robert Zachary Diehl helping him score.

In the third, Brenning followed a Brandon Kelly RBI double with a single that put him on third. Brenning then swiped second and Fulton's Jack Gallagher made the miscue letting Kelly score the third Chiefs run. A double steal in the seventh helped Brenning score again.

Paducah's Jacob Hartline belted a two-run homer over the right field wall in the fourth. The Railroaders got their earlier scores on an RBI single from Diehl in the third and a solo homer over right field from Matt Higgins in the eighth.
