The Lemurs are currently riding a 10 game winning streak as they enter their last road trip of the season. A big part of those wins has been infielder jimmy mojica and he was recognized by the American Association today as the leagues Hitter of the Week. Mojica batted .438 with four home runs and 12 RBI while scoring nine runs over the past seven days. The shortstop joins outfielder John Allen as the only two Lemurs to win the individual award so far this season.
Taking a look at the current standings and the Lemurs now hold a two and a half game lead over Grand Prairie after the Air Hogs lost again to last place Amarillo. Amazingly none of the four teams in the south division have been eliminated yet, as the Sox are only six games back while El Paso is five back after losing all four to the Lemurs. Laredo has seven games remaining, all on the road including four with league leading Fargo-Moorhead beginning tomorrow night.
The Lemurs kick off their last road trip of the year tomorrow as they take on league leading Fargo Moorehead in a four game series. The Redhawks currently have a record of 61 wins and 32 losses, seven and a half games better then the number two team in the American Association. After four in Fargo, Laredo will travel to Gary, IN to end the regular season with a three game set against the Railcats. In comparison the Air Hogs will host Sioux Falls and Amarillo, neither of which has a record over .500.
