On the last day of the season for the Washington Nationals' affiliates, four teams were in action, (with the notable exception of the GCL Nationals who captured the GCL Title last week and the Vermont Lake Monsters, whose season ended last night), and at the end of the day several players and one manager from the Triple-AAA affiliate in Syracuse, NY got the call to come down to DC for Tuesday night's game against the Phillies.

• Syracuse Chiefs (Triple-AAA) - The Pawtucket Red Sox ended the 2009 International League schedule in Syracuse, where they dropped a 5-3 decision to the Chiefs, who rallied for a 3-run eighth to overtake the Red Sox' Triple-A affiliate. Shairon Martis was on the mound for Syracuse, and the former DC starter threw 102 pitches over six innings, allowing 6 hits and 3 ER to end the '09 campaign with an (0-3) August in which he allowed 44 hits, 24 ER and 6 HR's in 6 starts and 36.1 IP. Martis did not get the W for the Chiefs though, and he didn't get the call back to the big leagues either, instead, RHP Zack Segovia got both the win and the ticket, joining fellow Syracuse pitchers Logan KensingRoss DetwilerMarco Estrada and infielder Ian Desmond as the September additions to the Nationals' roster. (ed. note - "Syracuse skipper Tim Foli will also join the Chiefs making the trip to the big leagues, as announced by MLB.com's Bill Ladson yesterday in a blog post entitled, "Craig Stammen has surgery; Foli to be called up"...)

• Harrisburg Senators (Double-AA) - Rain ended the Senators' season finale after six and a half, and the Nationals' Double-AA affiliate beat the Bowie Bay Sox (BAL) 5-3 to improve to 70-72 on the season, good for 5th out of 6 teams in the Eastern League's Southern Division. Right-hander Bradley Meyers improves to (5-1) with the win and ends the '09 campaign with a 2.25 ERA in 9 starts and 43.0 IP with the Senators after being called up from Class-A Potomac, where he'd been (6-2) with a 1.43 ERA in 15 G and 88.1 IP. Meyers ends 2009 with an (11-3) record overall and a combined 1.72 ERA with 32 walks and 108 K's in 136.1 IP over which he allows just 26 earned runs while holding opponents to a .223 BAA. 1B Chris Marrero goes 2 for 3 with a double, his 6th, and his 12th RBI in 23 games at Double-AA after he'd hit for a .287 AVG with 21 doubles, 2 triples, 16 HR's and 65 RBI's in 112 games with the P-Nats.

• Potomac Nationals (Class-A Advanced) - The P-Nats beat the Kinston Indians 9-4 Monday with 4 runs in each of the last two innings on their '09 schedule, which ends with the P-Nats second overall in the Carolina League's Northern Division, 4.0 games behind the Kansas City Royals' Class-A affiliate, the Wilmington Blue Rocks. The P-Nats started the seventh down 4-1 but rallied with RBI singles by center fielder Boomer Whiting and second baseman Michael Martinez, a game-tying RBI triple by SS Daniel Espinosa and a game winning RBI double by right fielder Michael Burgess. After four more in eighth, Potomac stopper Cole Kimball closes out the '09 campaign with his 9th save of the season.
