DY GOES DEEEP! Potomac Nationals beat Lynchburg Hillcats...Dmitri Young's HR helps beat Lastings Milledge and the Hillcats...3-2 final. I wrote a note to Anthony Masterson, (Broadcast/Media Assistant with the Class-A Carolina League's Potomac Nationals), when I realized this morning that Dmitri Young was going to be playing for the P-Nats, to ask if he could send a quick note to let me know how DY had done in the game. (ed. note - "In an article at Potomac's official site entitled, "Dmitri Young to join Potomac Tuesday", Mr. Masterson explained the DY was moving around the affiliates so that he could get "consistent at bats..."). I got a response about the P-Nats' win early this afternoon, reporting that Young had gone 1 for 3 with a walk, a HR and 1 RBI. The P-Nats took a 3-2 decision on an RBI single by Jesus Valdez that scored pinch runner Brian Peacock in the bottom of the eighth after he'd come on to run for Chris Marrero, who had reached on an error before he was replaced on the basepaths. DY's HR was called "titanic" in Anthony Masterson's post game report entitled, "Forever Young: Dmitri's Blast Propels P-Nats", and in the note he sent along he joked, "I'm not sure if it's landed yet." DY!!! (ed. note - "Milledge was 1 for 5 with a double and an RBI.")
