  • It's only a quality start if you get your own runs, too: Livan Hernandez (+19.7%) strikes out 4, walks 2 and only gives up 1 ER in 7 IP... for the loss.
  • Rally timers: Jayson Werth (+24.0%) is 1-3 with a double and a leadoff walk in the 9th (+13.3%). Laynce Nix (+12.9%) is 2-4 with a single to put 2 on with no outs in the 9th (+18.5%).
  • Rally killers: Wilson Ramos (-28.4%) pops out on the first pitch with one out and a man on third while down by one in the 9th (-28.5%), then Jerry Hairston (-35.1%) flies out to end the game (-19.4%).
