The blown-save-loss went to Hayden Howard with three runs charged on two hits and a walk over an inning and 2/3rds with an “assist” from Jordan Mills, who let both runners he inherited. Austin Davidson continues to rake like he’s been in the league for three seasons with a 3-for-5 night, including a double and two-run HR to lead the P-Nats attack of 13 hits and three walks.
