Zebulon, N.C. –Potomac Nationals first baseman Kevin Keyes hit a two-run homer that shattered a light bulb in left field to give Potomac the 2-0 win over the Carolina Mudcats on Wednesday night at Five County Stadium.

The Nationals held the Mudcats scoreless for the first time this season.  With the offense failing to score, Shawn Morimando suffered the loss for Carolina despite an impressive outing. The left-hander scattered three hits, including Keyes’ blast, fanned three and walked two.

Despite their efforts, Carolina was unable to put together a rally until the ninth inning. The Mudcats got two on after first baseman Jerrud Sabourin drew a walk followed up by a single from right fielder Jordan Smith. However, Nationals’ reliever Derek Self forced a pair of outs and retired left fielder Bryson Myles to end the game.

The Mudcats can claim the four-game series against the Potomac Nationals on Thursday night at 7:15 PM at Five Country Stadium.
