Game 34: Return of teh Rh1n0! Nats 3, LA 2

HORNS!! - Patrick Smith

Ramos returns with some authority, but the pitchers come to the fore tonight. I like this lineup.

  • Out too long? Stephen Strasburg (+13.1%) goes 7.1 IP and well over 100 pitches before coming out, giving up 2 ER with 6 Ks and 2 BBs on the afternoon.
  • One-two punch: Jerry Blevins (+10.6%) and Tyler Clippard (+10.3%) each earn shutdowns for recording one out each in the aeyth, defusing a two-on, one-out jam after Stras was lifted.
  • Werewerths of Half Street: Jayson Werth (+17.3%) is 2-4 with a first inning double to put runners 2nd/3rd (+9.1%).
  • Graceful, effortless, slow: Adam LaRoche (+10.1%) singles off the top of the wall in the first to drive in two and tie the game (+12.1%)
  • The power will come: Wilson Ramos (+10.9%) is 1-2 with a walk, a double, and a sac fly for the go-ahead run in the 5th (+2.1%).
  • Refreshingly uninteresting: Rafael Soriano (+15.3%) earns a shutdown with a stress-free, 1-2-3 9th, fanning two.

One o'clock seems to be the key.
