Today's game story: Nats lose, don't sweep.
- Hero? Rick Ankiel (+9.1%) is today's WPA leader on the strength of his two walks.
- Meh: Chien-Ming Wang (-5.6%) gives up 2 ER in 5.1 IP, walking 3 and only striking out 1. Tom Gorzelanny (+0.0%) gives up another ER, fans 4 and walks 1 in 2.2 IP in relief.
- FAILtastic top of the order: Steve Lombardozzi (-11.4%) and Bryce Harper (-13.1%) are 0-8.
- Also not helping: Ian Desmond (-13.7%) is 1-4, but manages a rally-killing, two-on GDP to end the 7th (-10.1%).
- Stat-padder: Ryan Zimmerman (+8.0%) is 2-4 with a 9th-inning dinger to get the Nats on the board (+4.3%).
