- Unsupported, but not dominant: Stephen Strasburg (-14.3%) is hardly helped by a pair of unearned first inning runs, struggling through 6 IP with 6 Ks and 2 BBs. However, he gives up a pair of solo shots that would have lost the game anyway.
- Not clutch: Jayson Werth (-12.9%) GDPs to quash a nascent 6th-inning rally when the Nats were only down by two (-10.2%).
- Slop counts: Steve Lombardozzi (+7.2%) leads the Nats in WPA with a bases-loading ROE with no outs in the 7th (+10.9%).
- Really not clutch: Kurt Suzuki (-13.7%) helps prove "clutch" is not an actual skill, fanning with the bases juiced and no outs in the 7th, down by 3 (-9.5%). Roger Bernadina follows with a pop up (8.5%), then Denard Span (-8.6%) ground out (-8.1%).
- Honorable mentions: Stras got his first hit of the year, a 3rd-inning double (+4.4%). Span caught almost everything. Chad Tracy (+4.3%) picked up an RBI for the Nats' sole run (+8.3%). Zach Duke (+1.0%) had a 1-2-3 7th.
