LONG BEACH, Calif.—Behind Hunter Greene’s strong outing, the Brewers beat the Nationals 4-3 on Sunday in Day Two of the Area Code Games.

Adam Kerner (Oaks Christian High, Westlake Village, Calif.) hit the go-ahead, two-run home run in the bottom of the sixth inning for the Brewers, who are representing Southern California.

“I wasn’t trying to do too much, just drive something to the outfield,” Kerner said.

Greene (Notre Dame High, Los Angeles) started the game for the Brewers and struck out four batters while allowing just three hits in 2 2/3 innings.

Greene’s fastball sat 96-98 mph in the first inning and the slider had 10-to-4 action that was getting swings and misses, according to BA’s Hudson Belinsky.

Jeter Downs (SLAM Charter School, Miami) hit a two-run homer to give the Nationals the lead in the fifth inning. Tanner Morris (Albemarle High, Charlottesville, Va.) added to his RBI total with a sac fly in the top of the fourth inning in the losing effort.
