HR >> Red Sox: Hartshorn, Anderson.

Playing with only 8 players the first two innings, the Red Sox found themselves down 11-3 with the Rays finding all the right places to land baseballs and score runs.

Colt .45s 3
Nationals 1
WP: Nakagawa.
HR >> Colt .45s: Pollard.

Mr. Reliable, Evan Nakagawa, shined again throwing his second consecutive complete game in a 3-1 victory that went into extra innings. The game started with a 350 foot bomb by Marcus Pollard to put the Colt .45s ahead 1-0. With Nakagawa on the mound against the Nationals ace Daniel Lopez, the score remained 1-0 until the 6th inning. The Nats tied the game in the sixth with a hit batter who stole 2nd and third and followed it up with a base hit by Sadler.

The game went into extra innings and both managers decided to stick with their aces for the remainder of the game. In the top of the 9th, Pollard led off the inning with a double and advanced on a wild pitch. David Chezar grounded out to 3rd and the Nats decided to intentionally walk the red hot Gabe Soza. Yanni Shani grounded out to the shortstop and Mike Pence came up to the place looking to win the game for the second time this season. Pence hit a fastball to the shortstop who threw it away scoring Pollard and Soza, putting the score at 3-1.

The bottom of the 9th was up to Nakagawa. The first batter, Stafan, reached on an error by the 3rd baseman, but Nakagawa didn't seem to mind, picking him off on the 3rd pitch. He followed up with the next batter striking out Sadler for his 10th strikeout, tying the franchise record. Nakagawa then got Daniel Lopez to ground out and the Colt .45s won the game.

Nakagawa (W, 9 IP, CG, 5 H, 1 ER, 10 K, 1 BB), Pollard (3-4, HR, 2B, RBI, Run), Soza (1-2, Run, 2 BB), Chezar (1-4), Erlick (1-3).
