Power Rankings #2

It’s been almost two weeks since our last power rankings, so it’s about time to run through this activity again.

Again, though, folks, remember: this is silly. It’s just a fun way to look at the teams at this particular point in the season (through games of June 28).

The lines go like this: Team, record, run differential, hitting slash line (avg/OBP/slugging), team ERA, and runs scored/runs allowed per game, and movement since the last PR. 

  1. Waynesboro Generals, 14-6, +40, 243/346/345, 3.28, 5.8/3.8, Up 1 spot. OutscoringWaynesboro opponents by 40 runs in 20 games gives the Generals the top spot. Zach Sterry has 7 doubles, 4 home runs, and 17 walks.
  2. Strasburg Express, 14-6, +28, 289/392/377, 4.40, 6.6/5.2, down 1. Even though the Express drops one spot, the team has scored the most runs per game in the league. Carter Pharis has 15 RBIs in 19 games, while Dylan Ingram has 16 in 20.
  3. Harrisonburg Turks, 15-6, +28, 287/372/414, 4.05, 5.8/4.5, no change. Jonathan Pryor and Trevor Craport are hitting over .390. Pryor leads the league.
  4. Front Royal, 12-9, +25, 232/322/337, 2.61, 5.2/4.0, no change, A 2.61 team ERA! Of course, the team has given up 27 unearned runs, too. Mitch Strophel has 21 K’s in 18 relief innings.
  5. Winchester Royals, 12-8, +4, 261/341/338, 4.89, 5.8/5.6, no change. The pitching staff has lowered its ERA almost a complete run in the last 9 games.
  6. Covington, 6-6, -6, 250/345/359, 4.28, 4.6/4.9, up 1. Jason Polgano is hitting .351, and did you know that exactly seven of the Lumberjack hitters have exactly eight hits?
  7. New Market, 9-14, -13, 280/372/416, 5.61, 6.0/6.5, down 1. Team has 51 doubles, 3 triples, 18 home runs, highest slugging in the league. Daniel Kerwin leads the league with 11 doubles.
  8. Charlottesville, 8-13, -12, 225/316/305, 4.12, 3.9/4.4, no change. Tom Sox are scoring the fewest runs per game, but have also given up the 3rd fewest.
  9. Staunton, 6-12, -6, 234/341/327, 4.53, 5.0/5.3, no change. Irvin Lopez leads the team with a .359 average- he’s hit in 8 of his 10 games.
  10. Purcellville, 7-15, -38, 248/358/337, 5.23, 5.0/6.7, up 1. Staff has given up 2nd most runs per game. Diandre Amion and Ray Hernandez lead the offense.
  11. Woodstock, 6-14, -50, 265/370/365, 7.32, 5.9/8.4, down 1. Offense has been quite productive, but allowing an average of 8.4 runs per game won’t win too many contests.
