Nationals Overcome Early Deficit to Beat Pewaukee
The West Allis Nationals used an 8 run second inning to distance themselves from Pewaukee on Thursday night en route to an 8-3 Langsdorf Nite League victory. The win left the Nationals atop the Nite League witha 5-1 record. Pewaukee slipped to 1-3 in the standings.
Starting pitcher Joseph Wagner showed some rust in his season and Nationals debut, walking 4 and giving up three runs in the first inning. However he settled in and followed that start with two scoreless frames.
Bob Herrick pitched two innings of scoreless relief to pick up his first win of the season.
Brian Huntzinger led the offense with a bases clearing double that put the Nationals ahead for good at 5-3. Drew Worth added 2 hits and 2 runs; Nick Lingvay contributed an RBI single and double.
The Nationals have a break until next Wednesday when they face Pewaukee again. Game will be played at Kuenn Field in Rainbow Park. First pitch is set for 7:30pm.
