Rochester Red Wings, 50-61, 8th place, 12GB, I.L. East
Last week, the Red Wings broke their 19-game losing streak and almost won a series for the first time in more than two months. Any plans to let C.J. Abrams get some confidence back at AAA went out the door with (yet another) injury, this time to Luis García. This week, Rochester heads east on I-90 to visit Worcester.
Roster moves: SS C.J. Abrams recalled to Washington.
Harrisburg Senators, 13-26, 5th place, 14½ GB, E.L. Southwest (43-65 overall)
Numerous online reports have it that Robert Hassell and Yasel Antuna will be moving on up to AA today. No word yet on the backfill, if any. Harrisburg heads west to visit Altoona for six this week.
Wilmington Blue Rocks, 20-22, 4th place, 4GB, Sally Lg. North (55-52 overall)
The Blue Rocks make their last stop in New Jersey this week with six against the BlueClaws. They’ll still have to pass through the state in two weeks when they visit the Cyclones.
Fredericksburg Nationals, 26-15, 1st place, 4½ GA, C.L. North (59-48 overall)
It’s the penultimate Battle of the ‘Burgs as Fredericksburg visits Lynchburg for the last time in the regular season, as, barring a meltdown, the two teams are on course to meet in the CLDS next month.
