- He slacks off when he has runs! Stephen Strasburg (+15.1% pitching, +2.7% hitting) gives up 4 R (2 ER) in 7 IP, but fans 11 and only walks 1. He adds some DIY at the plate, with a walk, an RBI single, and a run scored.
- Keep proving me wrong: Danny Espinosa (+18.0%) insists he's for reelz, going 2-4 with a two-run double to put the Nats ahead in the 4th (+18.0%).
- Make the choice tough: Denard Span (+7.3%) is 2-5 with a pair of doubles.
- Stat-padder: Anthony Rendon (+7.8%) is 3-5 with a 5th-inning solo shot for the eventual winning tally.
