RoughRiders At Sod Poodles For Their Last Series

The RoughRiders are at the Sod Poodles for their final series of the 2021 season.

Out of a 120-game season (one game was canceled due to covid), it comes down to the last seven games for the Frisco RoughRiders along with five other teams. The Midland RockHounds are mathematically still in the picture but they need a small miracle to make it.

As of now here is the race for the post-season in the Double-A Central.

Team Record Winning Percentage
Wichita Wind Surge 65-49 .570
Frisco RoughRiders 61-51 .545
Arkansas Travelers 62-52 .544

Tulsa Drillers 60-54 .526

This last 7-game series with the Amarillo Sod Poodles at Hodgetown is the most important series of the season for the RoughRiders.
