• Walters 2-4, R, HR, RBI
• Ramirez 2-3
Potomac ran themselves out of the 9th inning, as J.P.

Zach Walters accounted for the sole P-Nats run with his 5th HR. Trevor Holder was the tough-luck LP, allowing both Pelican runs (one unearned) on seven hits and a walk. The Carolina League has added Rob Wort to the All-Star game roster,
ruining his three-day break honoring him for a stellar first half with a 1.10ERA and five saves over 21 appearances.

Juan De Los Santos led the hit column with a 3-for-4 game.
