With the rainstorm of national attention placed on the controversial shutdown of Washington Nationals fireballer Stephen Strasburg, another very intriguing story has been unfolding in Washington DC.

Beneath the radar of the surging Baltimore Orioles and Philadelphia Phillies, the Nats have been thwacking the baseball like mad this September.

In 11 games this month, Washington has led the MLB in batting average (.310), hits (124), homers (28) and RBI (63). The Nats also lead baseball in OBP (.369), SLG (.578) and OPS (.947).

More impressive, five specific Nats players have given truth to the notion that hitting can be contagious.

These players are the subject of this slideshow.
