Josh Edgin and David Goforth combined for two and 1/3rd scoreless innings to finish the game.

Hits were aplenty but runs were not last night in Woodbridge as Potomac managed to get one more than Frederick, 3-2 to take a 2-0 series lead. Nick Raquet gave up more hits than innings pitched for the 14th time in 23 starts but also walked none for the fourth time, as he was able to limit the Keys to two runs on 10 hits over five and 2/3rds innings to pick up his fourth High-A win. Jacon Condra-Bogan retired all four batters he faced, stranding Raquet’s last baserunner as he led a trio of relievers. Ben Braymer cordero’d through the 8th (two hits, two walks, no runs – see last bullet above) for his third hold while Jeremy McKinney worked around a walk to earn his third save. Andruw Monasterio led the P-Nats attack with three singles, followed by Nick Banks’ 2-for-4 effort.
