On August 7, 2012 — CF Roger Bernadina makes one of the best catches of the year to preserve Washington’s 3 – 2 win at Houston. With two outs and two on in the bottom of the 12th, Brett Wallace hits a ball to deep center. On a full run, Bernadina leaps to grab the ball, disappearing momentarily behind one of the pillars protruding in front of the visitors’ bullpen at Minute Maid Park, and emerges with the ball in his glove. Washington now has the best record in the majors at 67-43, a feat the team has not accomplished this late in a season since its predecessors the Montreal Expos were leading the majors at the start of the 1994 strike.
2009 – 3B Scott Rolen re-signs with the Cincinnati Reds for two years. He had been acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays at the trading deadline last season.
