With four weeks left in the AAA regular season the WooSox find themselbves mired in the middle of the pack in the International League’s East Division, five games behind first-place Lehigh Valley with four other teams between them and the top spot. It’s going to take a lot better than 4-2 weeks over the rest of the season for the WooSox to grab the top spot in the division and the playoff berth that comes with it.
