Mudcats fall to Nationals

WOODBRIDGE, VA. -- Starter Alec Bettinger allowed eight runs and nine hits while pitching into the second and the host Potomac Nationals totaled 14 hits in a sweep-clinching 10-1 victory versus the Carolina Mudcats in Sunday's series final at Northwest Federal Field at Pfitzner Stadium in Northern Virginia.

Bettinger, in his first Carolina League start in his hometown of Woodbridge, took the loss for Carolina (19-17, 53-53) after allowing eight runs and nine hits over just an inning and 1/3. He also struck out two and threw 61 pitches (44 strikes) while leaving the game with one out in the second inning.

The Potomac (17-18, 54-48) half of the first began with a lead off single from Bryan Mejia and continued with three straight hits from Luis Garcia, Ian Sagdal and Nick Banks.

Sagdal's single scored Mejia and Banks' double brought in both Garcia and Sagdal.

Jackson Reetz also had a run-scoring single in the first as he brought in Banks with a hit to right.

Bettinger (1-2, 4.82) needed just over 40 pitches to get through Potomac's four-run and five-hit opening frame. He returned for the second, but recorded just one out while facing five batters and allowing two more runs on three hits.

The Potomac offense started the second with a leadoff single from Edwin Lora, but Bettinger answered back with a strikeout of Mejia. Garcia, Sagdal and Banks then followed with consecutive singles, thus knocking Bettinger out of the game.

Banks' hit brought in both Lora and Garcia to put the P-Nats up 6-0. The lead then ran to 7-0 when reliever Alec Kenilvort allowed a run to score on a wild pitch.

Moments later, Reetz then came through with his second RBI hit of the game to make it 8-0 Potomac.

Kenilvort allowed two inherited runners to score in the second before getting through the rest of the inning.
