  • Best hit! Ian Desmond jacks the first pitch of the fifth to put the Nationals up 3-2 (+0.135).
  • Craftiest veteran: Livan Hernandez (+0.070) only goes 5.1, but he's so sneaky that the Braves actually lost WPA on their first run (bases-loaded sac fly to go up 1-0 in the first: -0.002).
  • Most valuable rookie: Ian Desmond (+0.188) is 2-4 with 2 RBI (including a go-ahead dinger).
  • Better game tomorrow: Ryan Zimmerman (-0.076) 0fers.
