  • Old timey confuzzling: Ross Ohlendorf (+13.0%) baffles opposing hitters through 5 IP with 3 Ks and 1 BB, before giving up a solo shot in the 6th for his sole ER, bringing on Teh H00k.
  • Good at baseball: Ian Desmond (+11.7%) wipes away Sunday's bobble by going 3-4 with a two-out, first-inning RBI single to put the Nats up by 2 (+8.8%).
  • A bit of a pitcher's game: Tanner Roark (+7.7%) walks 2 and fans 2 in the 6th for a shutdown. Drew Storen (+9.2%) retires the side on 6 pitches in the 7th for a shutdown. Tyler Clippard (+11.5%) gets 2 Ks and a groundout on 9 pitches in the aeyth for a shutdown.
  • You were expecting? Rafael Soriano (+15.2%) gives up a two-out hit but holds the one-run lead in the 9th for the fourth shutdown recorded by Nats pitchers this game.
