  • Lost in the sun (1): Chien-Ming Wang (-7.4%) strikes out 2 and walks none in 4 IP, giving up 2 ER after Harp loses a fly ball in the sun for a "double."
  • With runners corners: Danny Espinosa (+5.4%) lines into a DP to end the 2nd (-12.4%), while Bryce Harper (-18.5%) GDPs to end the 3rd (-13.3%).
  • Helpful: Ian Desmond (+18.0%) is 2-2 with a double and 2 walks. Espy doubles to put runners 2nd/3rd in the 5th (+15.3%). Chad Tracy has a pinch-hit, RBI single to get the Nats within one in the 5th (+11.5%).
  • Lost in the sun (2): Ryan Mattheus (-39.7%) has a 3-run meltdown in the 7th, aided by Werth losing a fly ball in the sun and some unlucky infield hits.
  • Unhelpful: Kurt Suzuki (-22.3%) fans with runners 2nd/3rd in the 5th (-8.4%) and with the bases loaded to end the 6th (-10.3%).
