The West Allis Nationals rebounded from a tough 5-3 loss to the Menasha Macs on Friday with wins Saturday against the Marinette Redbirds (4-1) and Menominee Storm (8-1)

The difference versus the Macs was a fifth inning grand slam that put the Macs ahead and they never relinquished the lead.

Game one on Saturday was tight until Nick Lingvay delivered a two run single to close out a 3 run sixth inning.   Starter Jimmy Jungbauer kept the Redbirds at bay in a complete game performance, allowing no earned runs while striking out 8.

The Natties put game two away early, scoring 7 runs in the first two innings against Menominee.  Brian Huntzinger led the offense with three hits, including a home run and knocked in two.  Matt Richer added two knocks and two runs.

The Nationals close out the weekend versus the Marinette Redbirds at noon on Sunday.
