Fresno has gone 3-5 since we last checked in with them, but have remained in second place only 2.5 games behind the league leading Tacoma Rainiers (Mariners). The Hooks have scuffled over the past week, going 1-5 in their last six games and dropping into third place in the division. Lancaster has also had a tough week as they went 2-5 over the past week. The River Bandits were the only team with a winning week, going 5-2. They were also in desperate need of that good week after their very slow start to the season.

Reymin Guduan is starting to fine-tune his command which is a good sign for the flame-throwing lefty.
