Zach Walters, Sandy Leon, Xavier Cedeno, Erik Davis, Ian Krol, Corey Brown, Jeff Kobernus, and Eury Perez were the Nats 2013 September callups. These players should help the Nats down the stretch. Brown showed how HE can help the Nats by hitting a monstrous homer in the 9-6 win last night over Philadelphia! Davis, Krol, Cedeno, and Kobernus have all played at the Major League level this year already, while Leon and Perez helped out on the 2012 Nats. All of these guys made a major impact on the team. Zach Walters is making his debut at the Major League level. He hit 29 home runs this season in Syracuse! I can’t wait to see what these players do for the rest of the Nats season.
NL Star of Tuesday: The Pittsburgh Pirates: with 81st win, clinched winning season for the first time in Bryce Harper’s life.
AL Star of Tuesday: Eduardo Nunez: The Yankees shortstop laced a 2-RBI double down the left field line, that clinched a 6-4 Yanks win.
NATS LEAPED PAST THE DBACKS AND ARE NOW IN SECOND PLACE FOR SECOND WILD CARD SPOT
