Wilmington Looks to Overcome Loss of Big Contributors

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.
