Tonight's game story: Stras good, Nats win.
- Sharp: Stephen Strasburg (+34.3%) strikes out 9 and walks 1 in 6 scoreless innings.
- Jammin': Kurt Suzuki (+26.7%) hits a solo shot for the early lead (+15.3%) and singles in another run to tack on (+9.4%).
- He hates Bob Marley: Sean Burnett (-29.6%) gives up a game-tying two-run dinger in the 7th (-30.8%).
- If clutch existed, etc: Ian Desmond (+18.1%) is 2-4 with a go-ahead RBI single in the 7th (+21.4%). Danny Espinosa (+11.5%) is 3-4 with the winning RBI (+8.3%).
- Delightfully uninteresting: Tyler Clippard (+14.6%) has a shutdown 9th to win it.
