Tonight's game: Detwiler shines on Ankiel night.
- This could be the start of a beautiful series: Ross Detwiler (+34.6%) is good for 6 scoreless innings, striking out 7 and walking only 1.
- Reeck! Reeck, help me! Rick "The Stick" Ankiel (+16.2%) is 3-3 with a solo shot for the lead (+12.8%), a tag-defying double, and some great plays in the field that don't appear in his WPA total.
- We'll always have shutdowns: Craig Stammen (+9.0%), Tyler Clippard (+11.2%), and Henry Rodriguez (+6.3%) combine for scoreless 7th, 8th and 9th innings, respectively, with the latter two making things "interesting" in true Nats reliever style.
