Hot Rods Take Series Over Lake County Captains

June 16, 2016

The Hot Rods ended their home portion of the first half on a winning note. They take the last two series winning four out of six in the last two series. With the last two series wins, Manager Reinaldo Ruiz must be feeling good on how the second half should go. "The middle of the order did their work today, Ruiz said. They hit a couple of home runs and that was the difference in the game"
