In playoff action, the Nationals continued their strong play. While the offense was impressive, the pitching and defense were dominant. Jim Dettman pitched 6 shutout innings in route to a game one 8-2 victory. Leading the way on offense were Mike Czarnecki with three hits and Andy Butorac with a game-breaking three-run double. Nick Kibler met the challenge in game two. Allowing only 6 hits and striking out 5, Kibler shut down the White Sox and the team cruised to a 11-0 victory. The Nats posted tallies in each of game two's seven innings. Leading the offense was James Herkowski with 3 hits. Brian Gibson added two, including a homer. Mike Czarnecki, Alex Franson, and Joe Reisinger also contributed two knocks. The series sweep earns the Nationals a berth in the Milwaukee County Minor League Championship. The team will face Fritz' Dodgers in a best of three playoff series beginning Saturday August 11 at 6PM. All games will be played at Zirkel Field in McCarty Park.
