Woodbridge, Va. – Michael Taylor lined the game-winner off the left field wall in the bottom of the seventh as the Potomac Nationals rallied past the Carolina Mudcats 4-3 in game two. The walkoff, coupled with a 5-0 shutout in game one, earned a doubleheader sweep for the Nationals (12-13). The Mudcats (10-15) have lost four straight.

Potomac scored the winning run off Enosil Tejeda (0-1) in game two. The right-hander walked Billy Burns to start the inning, and stole second to set up Taylor. It was his third stolen base of the game.

Derek Self earned the win in relief, hurling a scoreless 1.1 innings.

Francisco Lindor had a strong outing for Carolina. Serving as designated hitter, Lindor cracked his first home run of the year in the first off Taylor Hill, a bomb over the right field fence. Trailing 3-1 in the third, the Indians’ top prospect doubled home Yhoxian Medina in the third to pull Carolina within one. He singled and scored the tying run on a two-out hit by Zack MacPhee in the sixth.

The teams set through a one hour, two minutes, rain delay before getting the double feature started. Potomac shutout Carolina 5-0 in game one behind a stellar outing from Blake Schwartz (2-0). The right-hander tossed five scoreless, scattered three hits, and struck out six.

Shawn Morimando (1-3) went the distance for the Mudcats, but surrendered five runs on eight hits over six innings. It was the most runs Morimando has allowed all year.

The Nationals struck for two runs in the second, and for three more in the fifth. Taylor also played a huge factor in game one, punching through a two-run single in the fifth to put the game away. Caleb Ramsey paced the Nationals with three hits.

Game three of this series begins at 7:05 on Wednesday night at Pfitzner Stadium. Joseph Colon makes his first start for Carolina. He will throw opposite Robbie Ray for Potomac.
