Pleasantly solid: John Lannan (+23.6%) makes the most of his two runs, giving up only 1 ER in 6.1 IP with only a single K, 2 BBs, and many, many grounders (although he escaped a bases-loaded jam in the 6th with a popup, +13.2%).
- Right on: Danny Espinosa (+11.9%) hits an RBI double for the early lead (+12.9%), steals third, and scores the critical insurance run on a Wilson Ramos (+4.5%) RBI single (+9.2%).
- What's a meltdown? Todd Coffey (+10.6%), Tyler Clippard (+12.3%), and Drew Storen (+16.5%) combine for 2.2 scoreless in relief to preserve the one-run lead.
- Must be a new moon: Jayson Werth (-11.3%) is 0-4 batting leadoff. Is that spot in the order cursed on this team?
