FredNats lose in Kannapolis
From the FredNats
Jeremy De La Rosa went deep, but the Fredericksburg Nationals dropped the opener in Kannapolis 14-2.
De La Rosa’s homer was his third of the year and his second on the road. Jacob Young reached three times in the game with a hit-by-pitch and a pair of walks. Brady House had a nine-game hit streak snapped but was on base twice with a walk and a hit-by-pitch.
The FredNats will look to rebound Wednesday at 6:00 pm with LHP Andrew Alvarez (0-1, 9.64 ERA) on the bump. He will be opposed by RHP Kohl Simas (1-0, 1.80 ERA) for the Cannon Ballers.
Kannapolis accumulated 13 hits and took advantage of eight walks en route to their seventh victory in ten games this season. Shortstop Colson Montgomery enjoyed a big night, compiling five RBI.
Noah Owen (2-0, 1.64 ERA) recorded the win for the Cannon Ballers after five scoreless innings of three-hit ball. Bryan Caceres (1-1, 7.00 ERA) suffered the loss after allowing six hits and five runs (five earned) in four frames.
The meeting was the first-ever in Kannapolis between the two teams. The squads split a series in Fredericksburg last year.
