Carson Teel got the spot start and delivered five innings of one-run ball on four hits and two walks while fanning two. Luis Reyes’s 23-inning scoreless streak ended when Aaron Fletcher couldn’t bail him out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam and walked in the tying run for the blown save in the 6th. Fletcher lost it in the 7th when a leadoff single got turned into a Little League double and two more singles brought in the go-ahead run. The P-Nats loaded the bases in the bottom of the inning but left on runners no. 12, 13, and 14.
