Wilmington-Potomac (top of the 14th):  Leatherman actually returns for the 14th, to make this his third inning pitched.  The first two batters ground out, to give Leatherman two quick outs.  Leatherman started out shaky, but has pitched great in this high pressure situation.  The third batter grounds out to SS Daniel Lyons to put an end to a 1-2-3 inning for Dan Leatherman.  I don't think Leatherman will be out for a 4th inning, but no one is warming up in the pen.  The P-Nats, with the ejection of Burgess, lost their only big HR threat.  Let's hope they can find some late inning magic.
Dan Leatherman sounds like somebody to keep an eye on. As recently as late July, his ERA was below 1.50 coming out of the Hagerstown bullpen.
