- Something of a phenomenon: Stephen Strasburg (+33.7%) "struggles" through 6 IP, walking 3 but striking out 7 and getting his first scoreless outing.
- 2 legit 2 quit: Josh Willingham (+16.6%) hits a bases-loaded, 3-run double to put the Nationals ahead for good (+24.5%).
- Speedster: Adam Dunn (+8.5%) is 2-3 with a walk. He even scores from first on Hammer's double.
- Extra rookie goodness: Drew Storen (+7.4%) goes two scoreless in relief with a K and a BB.
