Pitchers Adam Olbrychowski and Ryan Demmin gave up three HRs (all solo) on the night, working around three errors and three walks. Zach Walters led the offense with a 3-for-4 game, but the team left on nine, including three in the 4th when the P-Nats loaded the bases with no outs and couldn’t score.
