will pick this one up in the bottom of the third inning with a 1-1 count and the Nationals up by two. And
that’s where we would stay. Nationals win 2-0
The Warriors would be the first ones to put a mark up in this one; doing so in the top of the first and
jumping on Hit After Hit. Sealy lead off with a single and was followed by Hardy who burnt the left
fielder for a double. Putting runners on second and third. Irvin was resonsible for the damage as his
