Dan Strietbeck picked up the win, striking out nine without any walks finishing with four scoreless innings.

Post 13 scored twice in the bottom of the seventh to beat Potomac Valley 4-3 and earn the sweep.

Trenton Eirich led off with a single and took second on Matt Oleksik’s base hit. Travis Miller laid down a bunt that got past the first baseman allowing Eirich to score the tying run and Oleksik to get the game-winning run.

Potomac Valley was held to three hits by Keaton Funk. See had a double and Harman’s fifth-inning solo home run gave Potomac Valley a 3-2 lead.
