- You gotta DIY, man: Dan Haren (+23.5% pitching, -16.8% hitting) strikes out six and walks none in 6 IP, giving up only 1 ER. However, he's 0-3 at the plate with 5 LOB.
Where's the power? Ryan Zimmerman (+14.1%) is 2-4 with a walk and a pair of doubles, one in the 1st for an RBI to put the Nats ahead early (+14.1%), and one to lead off the 6th (+9.4%).
- I remember this guy: Drew Storen (+10.6%) throws a 1-2-3 7th for a shutdown.
- This guy, too: Tyler Clippard (+13.8%) has some three-ball counts, but ultimately throws his own 1-2-3 aeyth for a shutdown.
- Sigh. And him: Rafael Soriano (+3.9%) does not earn a shutdown for finishing a game with a 3-run lead, giving up a solo shot followed by 2 Ks and a fly out. He makes a fan nervous.
I'm in a good mood, so enjoy this fond memory of Pete Orr:
