Rochester Red Wings (9-9, T5th, 2GB, International League East)
After a 2-4 series against the IronPigs, the Red Wings are at .500 but still only two games off the pace set by Buffalo and Norfolk. This week, I-90 rival Syracuse comes to town for six, including an afternoon start on Thursday.
Roster moves: UT Dee Strange-Gordon assigned from Washington for MLB rehab.
Harrisburg Senators (10-5, 1st, 1½GA, Eastern League Southwest Division)
After struggling to score against Portland, Harrisburg took five of six from Reading by a combined count of 50-25 to soar into first place and the best record in the Eastern League. This week, it’s six against Hartford at City Isle.
Wilmington Blue Rocks (8-7, T2nd, 2GB, South Atlantic League North Division)
The Blue Rocks split against the Crawdads to hold serve at second place in the Sally Lg. North. This week, they head north to Hudson Valley for six against the Renegades.
Fredericksburg Nationals (11-4, 1st, 3GA, Carolina League North Division)
Fredericksburg’s five-game win streak combined with Salem’s four-game skid has put the FredNats in an unfamiliar position: 1st place in the C.L. North, up by three games, and leading the Carolina League with a Nintendo-like 8.53 runs per game. Charleston and its league-best pitching staff (3.6 R/G vs. 5.4 Lg. Avg.) come to town this week for six to see if they can tame them.
