  • Veteran Leadership: Ivan Rodriguez (+33.5%) defies our taunting about GDPs and goes 2-4 with the go-ahead RBI single in the 11th (+32.0%).
  • Shutdown artists: Tyler Clippard (+22.0%) has 2 scoreless innings of relief with 3 Ks, while Drew Storen (+12.2%) throws one scoreless with a K.
  • Delightfully league-average: Jason Marquis (-11.2%) gives up 3 ER in 6 IP with a dazzling 9 Ks and only 2 BBs.
  • Heating up? Adam LaRoche (+15.9%) is 1-3 with 2 BBs, while Ian Desmond (+14.6%) is 2-6 with an RBI single (+21.1%) in the game-tying rally in the 8th.
  • Struggling: Mike Michael Morse (-10.4%) is 1-4 with 2 Ks, including a strikeout swinging at 3 straight pitches out of the zone with the bases loaded and a tie game in the 8th (-13.7%).
