The Captains defeated the Lugnuts 13-0 on Thursday, grabbing their fifth win in a row.

Around The Farm: July 3, 2013
Sometimes greatness can spoil people. Francisco Lindor could spend almost every night atop Around The Farm, though sometimes we can take his all-around excellence for granted. Lindor is one of the transcendent prospects in the game of baseball and is the kind of talent every team wants in its system. The shortstop was at it again Wednesday night, along with plenty of other players throughout the system. To read all about them, join Jim Piascik as he goes Around The Farm.

On-Deck with the Captains: 6/26/13 - 7/2/13
The Lake County Captains suffered a four-game losing streak this past week, but have rebounded over the last three days winning three straight. The offense still struggles to produce runs, but the batting averages have collectively jumped. The starting rotation stepped things up as only one start was rough this week and the bullpen has done its best to keep the team within games.
