FCL Marlins 18 FCL Nationals 2

Believe it or not, the F-Nats actually led this 2-1 after 3½ innings before the F-Marlins effed up the ‘pen for 17 unanswered runs in an 18-2 bitch-slapping. Genderson Zapata got the start and allowed one unearned run on four hits and a walk over four innings. Andy Luis “worked on some things” for 13 batters and got five of them out. Four of the eight baserunners he put on came around to score in his third loss of the season. Lucius Fox toyed with the FCL Marlins pitchers for a single, double, and a walk as the DH, which is a shame because had he been in the field, odds are pretty good the F-Nats wouldn’t have committed six (6) errors. Roster moves: Zion Pettigrew reassigned from Fredericksburg.
