Unfortunately, Ken Rosenthal was not on the receiving end of a Gatorade shower (à la Julie Alexandria) during his postgame interview with Bryce Harper and Denard Span on Saturday at Nationals Park. Video above. Key takeaways include:
Harper on Denard Span: "Today was his day, he played unbelievable out there and he saved the game for us."
Span on rating the degree of difficulty of his two spectacular catches: "I think the second one was a little harder. I had to actually run hard for it and go get it in the gap."
Span on Bryce Harper: "Special. Similar to what I saw with Joe Mauer when I played with him in '09 when he won the MVP. Just something special coming to the field every day and watching him perform."
Nationals 6, Reds 3: The box score shows a save for Rafael Soriano, but Denard Span earned it with not one (video: 6th inning, runner on first, 6-2 game, robs Joey Votto of a home run) but two (video: 7th inning, bases loaded, 6-3 game) spectacular catches. Oh, and Dan Haren was pretty good too.
