On-Deck with the Captains: 7/31/13 - 8/6/13
The Captains returned home this past week, where they posted a 3-4 record. The offense seemed to generate some more hits, though these hits didn't necessarily come at the right times. Timely hitting has been an issue for the team all season, but a couple of home runs boosted the offense through a few games. Stephanie Metzger recaps the week that was for the Captains.
