Jordan Nakaya and Jordan Prince of North Kitsap led their National All-Star team to a 6-5 victory in the first game. The two combined for four RBI and three of the Nationals’ 13 hits in the opener.

One of four Jordans who played for North Kitsap this season, Nakaya went 2-for-3 in the opener with a double and three RBI. He drove in the Nationals’ first run with a two-out single that scored Gig Harbor’s David Benedict.

Jordan Prince joined the hit parade, rapping an RBI single to score Benedict in the fifth inning, and later scored himself when Bremerton’s Justin Rash drove him in for a 5-0 lead.

Benedict scored the Nationals’ final run when he stole home in the sixth. Benedict went 1-for-4 in the second game and was named the Elton Goodwin MVP of the series.

The Americans did the hitting in the nightcap, jumping out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first on an RBI double by Nate Wallen of Central Kitsap and a sacrifice fly by LeDuke.

The Americans broke the game open in the fourth, scoring five runs on a walk, two hit batters and three hits. Kyle Pease of South Kitsap and Wallen each had two-run singles.

"We started being more assertive at the plate," Owens said afterwards. "We started hitting the ball more solidly and that gave us insurance runs."

Gig Harbor’s Josiah Ward hit a solo homer in the third inning for the Nationals. Rash hit a two-run triple in the eighth inning for the last runs of the game.
