The Smokies are on a roll coming off a week where they went 5-2. Currently, the Smokies sit in last place in the Southern League North Division, but it’s tightly packed. Only 6.5 games separate first place from last place, and the Smokies have made up ground on 2nd and 3rd recently by going 6-4 in their last 10. The Smokies boast the 4th best ERA in the Southern League, a big reason why they have been making up ground and playing solid baseball lately.
The Smokies can’t seem to get on track as they struggled through another week. They are 3-7 in their last ten games and have fallen 7 games back of the division leading Jackson Generals. Maybe this will be the week where the Smokies gain their footing and move forward instead of always one step forward and two steps back.

Another tough week for the Smokies, but they got some help on Sunday. Junior Lake was added to the roster now that he is fully healthy, he should start helping the Smokies offense immediately. However, with one addition there was a subtraction as Jonathan Mota, arguably the best hitter to date for the Smokies was promoted to AAA.
It’s been a tough run for the Smokies as they sit in last place in Southern League North Division. Mostly because they have had to play the Jackson Generals so much, and they have been dominant. Full stats, and standings after the jump.
