The GCL Nationals have combined for a no-hit double header (two 7-inning games) against the GCL Marlins. Baez (6 innings ), Chu (4 innings), Jimenez (1 inning), Johnson (3 innings).

14 consecutive no-hit innings is impressive.

From Ghost at Talk Nats.

Our sources have told us that most of the changes will come within the pitching coaches ranks. Most notably Sam Narron will take over as the pitching coach at High-A Potomac; Tim Redding will take over as the pitching coach at Low-A Hagerstown; and Franklin Bravo will be the pitching coach at Short Season-A Auburn.

The PNats mini plans are awesome if you are someone who goes mostly for the bobbleheads (because let’s face it, the Pfitz is a dump and even if you love minor league baseball, it’s really hard to spend a lot of time at the Pfitz). The 9- and 16-Game plans get the early admission cards and as long as you’re in the SPH line 15 minutes before the main gate opens, you’re guaranteed to get the bobblehead. There were people lined up 6 hours early for the Stras flamethrower last year, no thank you, I’ll just buy the mini plan and if I miss a game or two, well, that’s still better than trying to get down there early enough to get the giveaway from the regular line.

Nats and Senators announce a 2-year extension of their PDC agreements. I love that ballpark. I would personally be happy if the Nats just bought the Senators straight up.

Is the Senator's dugout on the 3rd base side there, Patti?

I believe it’s on the 1B side actually, but I could definitely be mixed up! We usually sit along the outfield wall on these awesome barstool style seats so I might be remembering it wrong.

Certainly a nice looking park and location to boot...

The Nats have the worst minor league facilities in MLB, 30th out of 30 teams, and the only reason we are ranked that high is because of our new spring training ballpark. Expect the Nats to drop in the rankings next year as our top ranked minor league facility (Syracuse) is kicking us out.

Interesting that Auburn is ranked that low.  We know the Hagerstown and Potomac problems, but Auburn is news to me.

It's a bit of a mystery to me, and I've been there.  It's definitely not the same level of bad relative to its league that the Pfitz is.
