13 - Nick Akins Sr.

.333 BA, 15 HR, 35 RBI, 1.121 OPS

With his next long shot, the Admirals' batting coach will move into second on the all-time single-season homer list for Vallejo, passing his own 2017 total and closing in on Tillman Pugh's 18 from last year.

8 - Chris Fornaci

.286, 12 HR, 27 RBI, 1.097 OPS

Speaking of power trips, Chris has moved into second in the league in home runs behind Akins, all from the number-nine spot in the batting order.

41 - Brett Schneider

1-0, 1.37 ERA, 19.2 IP, 20 K

With Luis Ramirez taking up a spot in the starting rotation, the Admirals' best option out of the bullpen continues to post numbers that might get him shipped out to another league if he keeps it up.

30 - Martin Cronin

3-1, 2.55 ERA, 31.2 IP, 17 K

His guile on the mound will be needed against the Pacifics, who've won 12 straight and have a five-game lead over the Admirals in the standings.
