After teasing us with four wins in the last week of June, the D-Nats reverted to the mean and went 1-5 in the first week of July to drop to 6-22 – one of four DSL teams to have less than ten wins thus far. Two more batters have risen above the league average for OPS (.705) – 18-y.o. C Ivan Murzi (.722) and 17-y.o. SS Isan Castillo (.715), which is almost a surprise considering the team is 44th out 45 teams on offense.
