And Dan Leatherman promises to help make that dream a reality. This time, the Potomac Nationals High A team had a barrage of hits and scored a boatload of runs, while shutting down their opponent, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans. The Nationals are looking to win the Mills Cup, handed out to the victor of the Carolina League’s playoffs. They got off to a great start by beating the Pelicans 15-0 Monday night as the away team.
Dan Leatherman contributed by holding it down in the ninth inning for Potomac. He gave up no runs (following the excellent job by his fellow teammates) and logged a strike out, while only allowing one hit. Thus far, Dan has pitched five innings in the playoffs for Potomac, giving up no runs. Myrtle Beach scored a league-high 764 runs this season, but could not put one past the Potomac pitchers.
Game 2 is at 7:05 p.m. tonight. Dynasty will be following the box score and rooting for Leatherman, Gunderson, and the P-Nats.
