Nationals Fall to Mechanicsville, Face SYA East in Quarterfinals
The Danville National 11/12 All-Stars fell to District 5 powerhouse Mechanicsville 13-3 on Sunday. Strong hitting by the victors, and defensive lapses by the Nationals made for a long day for Danville pitchers. Offensively, three solo homers accounted for Danville runs, two by Grant Elliott and one by Addison Clark. Unfortunately Danville struggled to put runners on base for the sluggers to drive in.
Danville will face SYA (Fairfax) East at 9:30 am on Monday. With a win they will advance to the semifinals at 4:30 pm Monday evening vs. the Central Loudoun-Abingdon winner.
