Tonight's game story: Nats lose to last-place team again.
Nearly a quality start: Edwin Jackson (-14.4%) walks 4 and fans 6 in 5.2 IP, but gives up 3 ER on 3 solo shots (-10.0%, -15.6%, -15.6%)
- Give and take: Adam LaRoche (-14.3%) hits a bases-loaded single to put the Nats up 1-0 in the 1st (+9.2%), but later GDPs to snuff a nascent 6th-inning rally (-13.1%).
- Someone tell him it's Shark Week: Roger Bernadina (-13.2%) is 0-4 with 3 LOB.
- Not terrible: Michael Gonzalez (+7.1%) records a shutdown for 4 outs of scoreless relief work to keep it close while the Nats were busy not scoring.
