Astros Minor League Snapshot

Six weeks have now come and gone since the start of the minor league season and we're past the quarter mark. Let's take a look at where things stand.

The Redhawks are in second place in the American Northern Division because of a .006 difference in win percentage to first place Iowa. (Iowa has played four fewer games than Oklahoma City and has a .556 win percentage with two fewer wins and two fewer losses.) They are coming off a split with the third place Colorado Springs Sky Sox team (3 games behind OKC) followed by an off day on Wednesday.

The RedHawks are now headed on a 12-day road trip with four games each against three American Southern Division teams. First up are Nashville and New Orleans. For the season, Oklahoma City has a 1-3 record against first place Nashville and a 6-2 record against the last place New Orleans team.
