  • Hard luck is no surprise: Jordan Zimmermann (+9.4%) pitches 7 innings, striking out 2 and walking 1. A HBP leads to one of two ER, which is enough to lose.
  • The closest to clutch: Ian Desmond (+10.8%) is 2-3 and a walk and a brilliant 1st-to-home-on-a-groundout-circus baserunning play to tie it (+8.0%, although for Roger Bernadina, who had -3.3% on the night).
  • FAILest: Bryce Harper (-13.8%) and Adam LaRoche (-15.8%) go 0-8 with 3 LOB.
