The Scorpions blew an early 2-0 lead but got one back in the 5th and two in the 6th and held on for a 5-4 win and stopped a three-game slide.
Two Nationals appeared in the game:
● Israel Pineda (pictured below) appeared behind the plate but got no help from his pitchers as the Javelinas were in golf-course mode on the basepaths with four stolen bases. At the plate, Pineda went 2-for-4 with a walk and two whiffs.
● Trey Lipscomb (pictured above) was hitless in five trips to the plate but drew a walk and drove in a run. He manned second base and had three assists and one putout.
