Box Score Bytes - Game 54

Rox are now 1/3 of the way through the season.  I like to break the season into nine 18 games sets (i.e. like nine innings). 

Obviously the last 18 games were tough especially at home where the Rox hope to make up for their road struggles.  Some of the numbers are also masked by run outburst when Rox scored 12 and 15 runs.  Take those two games out and Rox averaged a measly 3 runs! 

But to try and put a positive spin on things, the Rox, with as bad as they have been playing, are still only 4.5 games back.  If your read this article it would suggest our team isn't dead yet!  But we are on life support.  The only thing going for us is that we've done this before (can lightning strike twice?) and we have been worse off at this point at the end of May:

2007: 25-29
2008: 20-36
2009: 20-29
2010: 27-24

So it's not too late but Rox got to turn it around and show some life.  Unlike last night...2 runs on 5 hits and 10 strikeouts.
