Record: 2-5 week, 41-26 season
Longest Streak: L3
The Cardinals may have only won
two games this week, but one was huge.
Comfortable in the nest
The Cardinals have excelled at home this season, posting a 26-11 as the home team. They are playing .500 (15-15) on the road, however. Factor in that the Redbirds are 5-2 as the "visitors" at Roger Dean, and the Cards are only 10-13 away from their friendly confines.
Comings and Goings
Josh Dew was promoted to Double-A
Springfield on June 9. Dew is the
seventh pitcher on the
Daryl Jones, OF: Jones hit .307 (8-for-26) this week with a triple and four RBI. In his last 10 games, the speedy outfielder is 12-for-37 with a homer, five RBI and three stolen bases.
Tony Cruz, C/3B: Cruz only hit .166 (4-for-24) this week
and his average is down to .253 for the season. He did, however, drive in
Daniel Descalso, INF: Descalso is really struggling right now. He went 4-for-21 this week and has just five hits in his last 36 at-bats. His run production has slowed as a result, as he has driven in only two runs in his last 10 games.
The Week Ahead
Saturday marks the FSL's All-Star Game, and the teams will also be given Sunday off. The Cardinals get back at it on Monday, with a three-game series in Daytona. They return home to "host" Jupiter, before playing the Hammerheads in a two-gamer as the visitors.
