Rochester Red Wings (41-38, 4th place, 2GB, I.L. East)
Rochester continued its descent to .500 with five losses to Worcester. Amazingly, the Red Wings are still only two games off the pace despite going into the negative for its run differential (374 vs. 427).
Harrisburg Senators (2-5, 5th place, 3GB, E.L. Southwest – 32-44 overall)
The Senators hit the reset button but remain in 5th place after five losses in the first seven games of the second half. They continue their series against the SeaWolves this week before heading back out on the road to Hartford next week.
Wilmington Blue Rocks (4-5, 5th place, 1½ GB, Sally Lg. North – 39-35 overall)
Wilmington took three of five against Jersey Shore before dropping the opener against Winston-Salem. This is the only series between the Blue Rocks and the Dash, continuing the league’s tradition of being two leagues in one with some token games between the two divisions.
Fredericksburg Nationals (9-1, 1st place, 3GA, C.L. North – 42-34 overall)
The FredNats are riding an eight-game win streak, which includes a series sweep (first-ever on the “W” side) of Delmarva last week. Fredericksburg continues its series against the first-half champion Lynchburg this week before heading to Georgia for the first of two series this season against Augusta.
