FREDERICK, Md. — The Potomac Cannons fell two games below .500 on Sunday, losing to the Frederick Keys 6-4. The Frederick win completed a three-game sweep, and moved them into first place by 1 1/2 games in the Carolina League’s Northern Division.
The Cannons (16-18) held a lead throughout much of the game. But the Keys’ five-run eighth inning doomed the Cannons. Val Majewski’s grand slam was the big hit in the deciding inning.
Potomac scored single runs in the first, second and fourth innings to take the early lead. Tony Blanco’s sac fly scored a run in the first, and Jeff Bannon hit solo home runs in the second and fourth.
William Bergolla doubled to bring home another run in the seventh, giving the Cannons a 4-1 lead.
Potomac returns home for the start of a seven-game homestand. The homestand begins today with a 7:05 p.m. game against Wilmington.
