Washington Nationals at San Diego Padres - May 29, 2010 | MLB.com Preview - Evan Drellich

"On Saturday, Latos faces the Nationals for the first time since that career milestone, now with eight career wins under his belt. Latos is making his 10th start of the season and has been dominant in May with a 1.29 ERA in five starts, the third-lowest mark for the month in the Majors."

MASNsports.com - Ben Goessling - "Nationals hang on for 5-3 win over Padres."

"So, befitting the screwball developments at Petco Park, we're going to monkey with the format of the game story. Here are the four key plays of the game, in terms of win probability added (WPA), and the details of what happened (and yes, I realize this is riffing a little bit on what Federal Baseball does. But I like the idea, so for one night, I'm going to borrow a piece of it and add some of my own thoughts)..."
