After starting out the second half of the season with a 2-5 mark, the Blue Rocks have amassed a 4-3 record. The reason? The team has brought their hitting shoes and they are getting in the grove, win or loss.
After being the statistical worst offense team in the Carolina League in the 1st half and having a record to match it, the Rocks offense has erupted. They lead the league with 14 home runs and have a team batting average of .272 (132-for-486). Hopefully this will keep up and the batters catch up with the great pitchers that the Rocks have so the team can be in sync and win regularly.
I like some of the Rocks promotion days and Pirate Day is one of them. They had a band that played thru the 5 inning and neither team flinched. Probably both sides were concerned about All Future Game Yordano Ventura. He struck out 10 in 5 innings and was almost unhittable but didn’t figure in the decision.
Here’ some pics and a video:
Next fun days are Star Wars Night and the Monkey Rodeo (July 13-14) so I’ve have good pics and videos to put up.
