2018 Area Code Games: Day Two WrapProspects
LONG BEACH, Calif. — Day two of the 2018 Area Code Games is in the books and the Northwest-based Royals made a huge statement in an afternoon shutout of the Southeast-based Nationals, providing the most impressive pitching performance of the week so far here in Long Beach. But the Nats didn’t wilt away after that loss as they pounded out nine runs in the nightcap win over the Midwest-based White Sox to make for instant redemption.
Some great individual performances once again dotted the day as we are only six games into the 21-game week of action here at Blair Field.
But before we get to a recap of the day, let’s cover a few more ground rules for the Area Code Games and how things go around here.
