The RedHawks currently lead the Winnipeg Goldeyes by 8 1/2 games in the North Division standings, while the Boulders sit in second and are six games back of the Can-Am league-leading Quebec Capitales.

The Opponent
Fargo-Moorhead and Rockland played for the first time at Newman Outdoor Field in 2012. The RedHawks swept the Boulders in three games by the scores of 7-3, 10-1 and 4-0. Paul Burnside, Aaron Shafer and Tyler Herron all picked up victories in the series, while current Rockland pitcher and former Fargo-Moorhead pitcher Kevin Fuqua earned a save.  The Rockland organization was formed in 2011 and plays its home games at Provident Bank Park. The club was named Organization of the Year for the Can-Am League in 2012. Based in Ponoma, N.Y., within Rockland County, their nickname refers to the large amount of boulders located in the region where the team is located.
