As the big league club continues to scuffle, allow me to invite you to turn your attention to the minor leagues, where fun things continue to happen on a near-nightly basis. This week, Modesto surged ahead of Everett to become the winningest affiliate as the AquaSox began to slump a little. Also, a surprisingly good Arkansas team keeps on winning.
Low-A West: Modesto (13-5) takes series from Inland Empire (LAA) (8-9)
There is a train whistle sound that goes off after every Inland Empire home run and it is the worst, so I was rooting all series for the Nuts to keep the 66ers scoring to a minimum.
