Things then fell apart as they went 4-12 the rest of the way to finish out the month at 10-16....
September is approaching and one of the strange things about baseball is that when it rolls around the rosters expand. No other sport operates like that and it’s a rather confusing rule.

The Louisville Bats lost on Saturday night, but it wasn’t for a lack of effort on the part of Felix Perez who remains as hot as an be, going 3-4 with a double. Over his last four games he is 10-15 (.667) with three doubles, a walk and 2 runs. It was his third straight multiple hit game.
Pensacola outfielder Juan Duran continued his torrid run last night, going 1-2 with a walk...
Juan Duran brought the boom last night in a Pensacola loss. The big right handed hitter went 3-3 with three doubles. All three of his doubles went to right field. He’s been inconsistently good over his last 10 games, trading big games with a few 0′fer games, but overall he’s hit .344 and slugged .813 in the last 10 games with eight extra-base hits.
Duran’s fellow outfielder...
