The defense was not the problem, but it's kind of a funny picture. - David Banks

It was foggy and the Nats lost.

  • Off the hook: Doug Fister (-8.8%) has an off night, meaning he only manages a quality start, giving up 3 ER onver 6 IP with 1 K and no walks. Try some more strikeouts.
  • Powerhouse at the plate: Denard Span (+13.3%) is 2-4 with a game-tying, two-out, two-RBI double in the 7th, although he got TOOTBLANed rounding second (+12.1%).
  • Mocking my faith: Craig Stammen (-27.1%) can't keep it tied, giving up the go-behind runs in the 7th.
  • Bad days at the plate: Adam LaRoche (-16.4%) is 1-4 with 2 LOB and a GDP. Ian Desmond (-15.6%) is 0-4 with 3 LOB.
  • Miscellaneous merit: Wilson Ramos (+2.9%) is 2-3 with a walk. Danny Espinosa (+2.9%) has a pair of walks.
