Welcome to the Big Leagues, Kid.
Drew Storen survived his first appearance out of the bullpen Monday night in St. Louis, entering the game with the Nats trailing 4-2 in the 7th with one out and a runner on first. The Future Closer got Felipe Lopez to fly out (nice catch, Hammer!), hit Ryan Ludwick with a pitch, and struck out Matt Holliday on a sinking fastball to end the inning. Too bad he can't hit, too.
