Great Britain: Harlow Nationals Sweep Croydon Pirates

GREAT BRITAIN – The Harlow Nationals rebounded Sunday from a disappointing loss to the London Mets a week ago to claim a British National Baseball League twinbill sweep over the winless Croydon Pirates.

The reigning NBL champion, knotted in the top spot with the Southampton Mustangs, coasted to a 9-2 win in the opening game before bringing out the brooms in the finale with a 7-2 victory.

The Mustangs (7-2) notched a pair of forfeit wins over the Bracknell Blazers (0-6), while the matchups between the Essex Arrows (5-5) and the London Mets (5-2), as well as the contest between the Lakenheath Diamondbacks (2-5) and the Herts Falcons (6-2), ended in a doubleheader split.
