  • More grounders, please: Doug Fister (-20.6%) gives up 4 ER over 6 IP, with 2 walks and 2 strikeouts. He does not keep the ball on the ground.
  • Offense: Jayson Werth (-1.5%) draws a bases-loaded walk to get the Nats on the board in the fifth (+9.0%). Adam LaRoche (+3.9%) draws a pinch-hit, bases-loaded walk in the 9th for the Nats' other run.
  • Offensive: Ryan Zimmerman (-14.6%) grounds out to strand the bases loaded in the 5th (-9.7%). Sandy Leon (-13.8%) is 1-4 with 5 LOB.
  • Span should be nervous: Danny Espinosa (+13.1%) is 2-3 with a bases-loading HBP in the 2nd (+6.5%).
