Tonight's game story: ALR gets 1,000th hit in Nats win.
- Minor Stumbles: Gio Gonzalez (+11.4%) goes 7IP with 10 Ks and 2 BBs, but the 3 ER makes it a shaky outing--for him, at least.
- Mr. One Thousand: Adam LaRoche (+28.0%) goes yard in the 6th (+14.9%) and hits a bases-clearing double in the 7th (+15.6%).
- Goon squad (x100): Xavier Nady (+7.1%) continues to defy me, walking and hitting his 100th career dinger (+7.1%).
- Power at the top: Ian Desmond (+4.6%) hits one out to pad the early lead (+10.3%).
