The Blue Rocks felt the absence left by some organizational moves as both Rey Navarro and Nick Francis were called up to the Royals Double A affiliate, Northwest Arkansas. Navarro leaves the team leading in RBIs with 41 and has gone yard eight times.
Francis, who recently spent May 15-June 4 in Double A, was on fire since returning to Wilmington. In just his last 10 games with the Blue Crew, Francis has 8 runs and 7 RBIs. Francis also had two homers, inclduing a three-run shot to clinch a 5-2 victory over the Frederick Keys on June 28th.
The Blue Crew fell to the Salem Red Sox 2-0 last night in their first action without two of their biggest names. Wilmington now looks to continue the series and gain momentum with the new names on the roster.
