  • Rained out: Stephen Strasburg (+9.5%) gives up no runs in 2 IP on 2 Ks and 1 BB before he gets pulled during the rain delay.
  • Double doubles: Steve Lombardozzi (+11.6%) doubles in a run in the 2nd for the early lead (+12.7%). Bryce Harper (-2.7%) doubles in a run in the 3rd to extend the lead to 2 (+11.3%).
  • Not quite a shutdown: Craig Stammen (+5.3%) gives up 1 ER over 3 IP with 3 Ks and no walks in relief.
  • Keep the ball down: Ryan Mattheus (-29.6%) melts down pretty hugely in the 6th, giving up 2 ER to put the Nats behind.
  • Keep writing well: Jayson Werth (+12.3%) hammers a solo bomb to deep CF where the Racing Presidents line up to tie the game in the 6th (+19.5%).
  • As I keep saying, "clutch" does not exist: Ian Desmond (+30.9%) is 3-4 with a two-out, go ahead, RBI single in the 7th (+22.2%).
  • Shutdowns: Drew Storen (+8.4%) puts two men on but manages a scoreless 7th, while Tyler Clippard (+11.5%) fans 2 in a scoreless aeyth.
  • What did you expect? Rafael Soriano (+15.2%) goes 1-2-3 in the 9th for the shutdown and the save.

Now is the time on FBb where we DANCE!
