  • One bad pitch: Jordan Zimmerman (-4.8%) squandered his 1 run of support in a 6.1 IP, 5 K,  1 BB start by hanging an 0-2 slider for a 2-run HR that put the Nats behind for good (-35.3%).
  • Three feet short: Roger Bernadina (-11.7%) steps on the plate on an otherwise-perfect drag bunt, misses an HR by 2 feet for a double off the wall (+9.5%), misses a grand slam by a foot for the third out (-7.3%), and stares at "strike" three (-9.3%) to end the game on a strike-'em-out, throw-'em-out.
  • Unlikely hero bid: Alex Cora (+12.1%) drives in the Nats' only run with a pinball single off the pitcher's foot and third baseman's glove for a tenuous lead (+11.9%).
