The West Allis Nationals broke out of their offensive funk Saturday night in a doubleheader sweep of Landmark Inn Tavern. The 5 inning mercy rule was employed in both ends of the doubleheader as the Nationals streaked to victories of 12-1 and 31-0. The local nine broke open game one with an eight run third inning, highlighted by home runs from Trevor Koepp and Alex Franson. Jim Dettman took advantage of the cushion, limiting the opposition to a single hit in 5 innings of work while gaining the victory. Game two was also decided early. A record-breaking seventeen run first inning was the story of the game. Trevor Koepp's grand slam gave the team a 5-0 lead and the rout was on. Nick Kibler was dominant on the hill. Kibler threw a no-hitter while striking out nine in 5 innings of work. The Nationals return to action on Saturday night versus Lifetime Financial at Harvey Kuenn Field at Rainbow Park. First pitch is 6PM.
