Nationals reliever Daniel Hudson said family is his top priority after missing Game 1 of the NLCS for the birth of his daughter

ST. LOUIS -- Washington Nationals manager Dave Martinez suggested a name for Daniel Hudson's new daughter -- "Anibala Sean Hudson," a nod to how Anibal Sanchez and Sean Doolittle combined to shut out the St. Louis Cardinals while Hudson was away for Game 1 of the National League Championship Series.

Hudson and his wife, Sara, ultimately went with Millie.

Sara gave birth to the couple's third daughter in Scottsdale, Arizona, early Friday morning. Later that night, Hudson watched his Nationals beat the Cardinals, 2-0, from a hospital room.
