Trailing the Eckly Reds of Pennsylvania, 4-0, the Nationals struck for a pair of runs when Evan Hoagland and Kris Payne each singled in a run. In the fourth, Colton Zavistaski doubled in 2 to tie the game.

In the fifth, the Nationals put the game away with three runs. John Stewart and Payne singled, and Ethan Kelsey doubled them home. Kelsey later scored on a wild pitch to close out the scoring at 7-4. Michael Resetar pitched the complete game striking out eight and giving up only two earned runs.  In the second game of the day against the Jersey Titans, Nate French led the Nationals with a triple, single and a pair of RBIs, and also entered the game on the mound with the bases loaded, no outs and the score 7-4 and got out of the jam to pick up the save. Kelsey tripled and singled and Stewart added a double. The win gave the Nationals the No. 2 seed after first round play.
