WOODBRIDGE, Va. (AP) -- KJ Harrison hit a walk-off two-run homer with two outs in the seventh inning, as the Potomac Nationals topped the Wilmington Blue Rocks 5-3 in the first game of a doubleheader on Tuesday.

The home run by Harrison capped an improbable comeback for the Nationals, who scored four runs in the inning for the win. Cole Freeman and Aldrem Corredor both drove in runs earlier in the inning to help set the stage for the game-winning score.

The Nationals cut the deficit to 3-1 in the bottom of the fifth when Nick Banks hit an RBI single, scoring Jakson Reetz.

Hayden Howard (2-1) got the win with three innings of scoreless, two-hit relief while Holden Capps (3-2) took the loss in the Carolina League game.
