Amos Willingham was credited with the win, though he let in both Brooklyn runs on two-run HR and five hits total over three innings. He walked none and fanned five. Chris “Chevy” Vann (1⅔ IP) and Reid Schaller (1⅓ IP) combined for the last three innings to pick up the hold and save, respectively.

Rodney Theophile made his first appearance since June 1st but was ineffective, giving up two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out three. The loss went to Bryan Peña with the aforementioned four runs on four hits (one HR) and two walks over five innings. He struck out six. The F-Nats took advantage of two wild pitches and two errors to score three times on just three hits, though one was Jackson Coutts’s first HR as a pro. The others were singles by Jeremy Ydens and Jake Boone.
