Dan Leatherman Is HUGE In Potomac’s First Playoff Game

C’mon…the guy just gets called up to High A Potomac for the first time this season and you expect him to already be a major contributor to your team’s success?  I cannot stop smiling after reading the story from today’s Potomac Nationals roundup.

After becoming the first full-season Washington Nationals affiliate to clinch a postseason berth and first in the franchise’s history since 2004, the Potomac Nationals made a splash in their playoff debut taking game one of the Northern Division Championship Series 2-1 in 15 innings.

Dan Leatherman (1-0), making his Carolina League debut, was fantastic over four innings, blanking the Blue Rocks while allowing just two hits. The 23-year-old struck out a pair and walked none.

Leatherman went four innings, which is a lot for a guy that has mostly been called on to pitch a solid 1-3 innings for most of the year.  He picked up a win in his first High A game of the year.  Best of all, he only allowed 2 hits and no walks!  Hard work pays off.  Dan has remained loyal to his team throughout the year and never complained to his superiors.  We are extremely proud of our man.

Good luck to Leatherman and Gunderson and the rest of the P-Nats tonight as the playoffs continue.
