Glen Perkins earned his fourth save of the season after tossing a perfect ninth inning with one strikeout against the Rays on Wednesday.
After a rough start to the 2014 season, Perkins has started to settle down, and has not allowed an earned run over his last six appearances while going 3-for-3 in save chances. He is currently sitting on a 4.00 ERA and 1.11 WHIP, but are both bound to steadily decrease if he continues trending in the right direction. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Bryce Harper went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Nationals 3-0 win over the Cubs on Wednesday.
Harper launched his 18th home run of the season on Wednesday as the power everybody expected Harper to have has finally arrived. At 22 years old Harper is currently the best hitting in baseball, sporting a .333 average with 41 runs, 18 home runs and 43 RBI to go with an insane .472 OBP and 1.222 OPS. It may have taken him a bit longer than many had expected since being on the cover of Sports Illustrated at just 16 years old but baseball fans everywhere should take notice as he is finally showing the world just how talented he is.
