Potomac decided to win this one an inning early with three in the 8th and held off Carolina for a 5-4 win, reducing their magic number to clinch to four. The 6-7-8 combo of Khayyan Norfork, Will Piwnica-Worms, and Justin Miller combined for five of the P-Nats’ seven hits, including back-to-back-back RBI singles that turned a 3-2 disadvantage into a 5-3 advantage. The rally took starter Brett Brach off the hook for a loss as he gave up those three runs on seven hits and two walks over fine innings. The win went to Derek Self, though he was peppered for five hits over two innings. Robert Benincasa registered save #10 with a 1-2-3 ninth.
Roster moves: LHP Kylin Turnbull placed on the 7-Day DL; LHP Chris Manno assigned from Washington; RHP Derek Self added to Carolina League All-Star Team.
