Visalia Rawhide, A

The Rawhide went 4-3 to raise their record to 31-13 on the season. They currently sit in first place in the California League North Division. What is interesting about the Rawhide is they have had consistent production from all over the diamond. It seems each week they are able to mitigate the disasters and get well-timed and clutch hitting and pitching.
