The Biscuits went 5-1 on the week and improved to 33-33 on the second half. There is just four games remaining on the season for the Biscuits and they hold on to a slim chance at making the playoffs. Jacksonville won the first half and is currently leading the second half. If Jacksonville holds on to first place, the second playoff spot will go to the highest overall record for the season in which the Biscuits trail Mobile by just two games. Also during the week, Alex Torres won the pitcher of the week award and Matt Gorgen was named to the postseason all-star team.
