Lombard Snaps Nats Streak
The Lombard Orioles showed Saturday why they have, and continue to be, the stick by which others are measured. Using a powerful combination of balanced hitting and aggressive pitching the team easily dispatched the locals by scores of 15-2 and 6-1.
The Nats fell behind early by 5-0 scores and Lombard never looked back. Tom Starck started game one and struggled with his command out of the gate. He settled in to go 5 plus innings, but the damage had already been done. Jim Jungbauer started off better game 2, but his wild throw to first on a sacrifice bunt attempt in the third inning instigated a third inning rally that put the Natties in a big hole.
The Natties hope to get back on track on Monday night in Oshkosh with a game against the Giants. First pitch is set for 7:30pm.
