Bases Loaded: Memorial Day Special

Leading Off–  Memorial Day weekend is truly one of the great spectacles in all of baseball.  This past weekend was no disappointment for those who saw the Birds build a homestand at Autozone Park.  The Redbirds are 6-4 in their last 10 games and beat the Omaha Cubs in front of a near capacity crowd Sunday night.

On Deck–  The Redbirds are in town all week vs Omaha and Albuquerque before they head to OKC for a road test.

Single- Don’t look now but the Redbirds are in 2nd place in the American North division.  At 22-27, the Birds are 4.5 games behind leaders Omaha in the division.

Double– Memphis has a .449 winning percentage heading into the week, they are in second place, but in any other Pacific Coast Leaue division it wouldn’t be good enough to trail first behind division leaders.

Triple– Now 11-16 on the season road travels, the Redbirds have begun to build some confidence in their travels.  If the road victories begin to balance out with the victories, the Redbirds can make a serious push for the division title as we reach the halfway mark.

Homerun–  35… second from bottom in the homerun category when you look at the rest of the division.

Bases Loaded is a weekly recap of the past week’s story-lines and news from the Memphis Redbirds.
