  • Betrayed by bats, bullpen: Jordan Zimmermann (-5.5%) isn't perfect enough in his 6.1 IP, 6 Ks and 1 IBB with no run support and two of his runners cashed in by a reliever.
  • Amazingly, not a meltdown: Ryan Mattheus (-4.6%) lets two of his 3 inherited runners score. Apparently, the Nats' hitting was so awful that there wasn't enough WPA left to lose to qualify him for a MD.
  • Trying: Steve Lombardozzi (+8.5%) is 2-4.
  • Rally destroyer: Rick Ankiel (-24.9%) is 0-4 with 4 LOB, 2 SOs and two-on GDP to kill a potential 6th-inning rally, back when it might have mattered (-17.4%).
