FredNats win! Move closer to the playoffs

by | Sep 2, 2022 | Sports

Cortland Lawson hit a go-ahead home run in the 7th inning and drove in four runs, and the FredNats beat the Delmarva Shorebirds for a 12th straight time on Thursday night 11-9.

The FredNats scored four runs in the 2nd inning on RBI singles from Jared McKenzie and Jacob Young, and a two-run single by Lawson. Delmarva scored three in the 3rd and five in the 5th to take an 8-6 lead after a two-run single by Will Frizzell in the 4th inning.

A pair of two out RBIs in the 6th tied the game at eight. Maxwell Romero Jr. got the first – his first career RBI – on a double to make it 8-7. Young then drove him in with a single to tie the game.

Lawson hit the two-run homer in the 7th, his second as a FredNat. It was 10-8 at that point, and then Branden Boissiere drove in an insurance run in the 9th for an eventual 11-9 win.

Six out of the nine men in the FredNat lineup had at least two hits on a 15-hit night for the team. Young and Frizzell each drove in two runs, and Lawson drove in four.

Brendan Collins (4-2) got the win, pitching 2.1 innings of two-hit ball in relief. Riggs Threadgill picked up his 8th save.

With the win, the FredNats’ magic number to clinch the division shrinks to five.¬†
