The FredNats ran rampant with two outs in the fifth to take the lead. Jake Boone singled and Jacob Young then walked before Darren Baker beat out an infield single to load the bases. Onix Vega bounced a single into center to plate two before Leandro Emiliani blasted a three-run homer, his fifth of the year, to cap the five run frame.

Fredericksburg added one more in the seventh. Young singled and swiped second where Baker knocked him home with another base hit to cap the scoring at 6-1.

Edward Urena (1-1) collected the win out of the bullpen for the FredNats. He fired three frames of one run ball, allowing three hits while striking out five.
