Leading Off– The Redbirds are 5-5 in their last 10 games including a current Bases Loaded record of 3-3 last week. Memphis began the week defeating the Fresno Grizzlies in dramatic fashion by escaping a no hitter and beating the Grizzlies in extra innings. Their past five games have alternated between wins and losses as the Birds struggle to find any type of consistency to gain ground on the American North Division field.
On Deck– Memphis plays four games in Salt Lake this week before returning to a homestand vs Omaha, the Cubs are leaders in the division and hold a 5.5 game lead of Memphis.
Single- Corey Rauschenberger is undefeated in his four appearances, he carries a 1.19 ERA in 22 innings pitched this season, leading the rest of the staff.
Double– Memphis is 17-25, tied for third in their division. In the three other PCL divisions, Memphis would be in last place at least a whole game out of third position.
Triple– Matt Carpenter and Nick Stavinoha have played in 41 games this season, leading the rest of the squad. Combined they have 82 hits between them both, which also leads the rest of the boys in red and white.
Homerun– We are now at 30 on the season, up 5 from last Sunday.
