This morning's game story: Nats beat Pads in (another) solid Gio start.
- A bit wild: Gio Gonzalez (+31.2%) gets 6 Ks over 6 scoreless, but he walks two. TWO!
- Ryan who? Chad Tracy (+19.3%) grounds a two-run, pinch-hit single up the middle in the 7th for the winning margin.
- Shaky: Craig Stammen (-17.8%) puts two men on without getting an out in the 7th, but Tyler Clippard (+13.0%) cleans up the mess with 1 unearned run scoring.
- Shutdown: Sean Burnett (+11.7%) and Henry Rodriguez (+6.3%) lock down the 8th and 9th.
