The Nationals and Dodgers met Saturday afternoon in a pre-season tilt designed to prepare players for the upcoming season. Nick Kibler, Jim Dettman, and Tim Spata combined to pitch 8 innings of shutout ball. The Dodgers broke through for three runs in the ninth after the team lost its ninth fielder. Joe Kissler led the offense with two doubles and Jim Dettman added two knocks. The Nationals take on the Langsdorf League's Milwaukee Orioles next Saturday in their final warm up before the season opener in Menasha.
