Potomac was able to take all five games from Winston-Salem with a 7-6 win in the series finale. Matt Spann started but was dinged for runs in all but one inning he began, as he gave up five runs on nine hits and three walks over four and 2/3rds for the no-decision. The P-Nats ‘pen stranded all six inherited runners and combined for four and 1/3rd innings of one-run ball. Mario Sanchez earned the win (#4), R.C. Orlan the hold (#5), and Gilberto Mendez the save (#5). Raudy Read led the P-Nats 11-hit parade with three singles, a run scored, and two RBI, followed by Max “For Those About To” Schrock and Alec Keller who both scored a run and went 2-for-5.

Williamsport broke up the Star Trek convention with a one-out solo HR in the 8th, Auburn got it back in the 9th, but the Crosscutters prevailed 2-1 in the 11th. Kyle Simonds got the start and threw four scoreless, with one hit, no walks, and three whiffs. Jonny Reid went the next five, giving up the one run on the one hit (see above), also sans bases-on-balls and a trio of K’s for an impressive NYPL debut. Tres Barrera doubled, took third on a grounder to second, and scored on Jake Noll’s single to right to tie it up. Nick Conner worked around two walks in the 10th, but the Crosscutters cashed in his third free pass with a sacrifice, a grounder to the right side, and an infield single to win it in the 11th.
