Solis puts together solid outing in Potomac win

High Single-A Potomac Nationals left-hander Sammy Solis was a little wild, but allowed only two hits in 4 2/3 innings Saturday.

The P-Nats rolled at Wilmington, 7-1. The P-Nats are 75-47 overall and 33-20 in the second half.

Solis, another one of the Nationals' top pitching prospects coming off Tommy John surgery, walked four and struck out four in the no-decision. David Fischer (4-0) came on to go 3 1/3 frames to get the win.

Shortstop Adrian Sanchez had a single, double and a triple. The three hits made it his second multi-hit game since Aug. 7.

Third baseman Cutter Dykstra went 3-for-5 with two runs scored and four RBIs. Dykstra has an 18-game hitting streak and has reached base in 26 consecutive games.

Solis has allowed only five runs in his last four starts. He is 2-0 with a 2.74 ERA in his last 10 games. He has 34 strikeouts and 13 walks during that span.

Dykstra is hitting .410 (16-for-39) in his last 10 games with four doubles, 10 RBIs, three stolen bases and eight runs. He is now batting .298 for the season in 95 games.
