  • Regression? Livan Hernandez (-34.8%) gets shelled in 4.1 IP, striking out 4 walking 2, but giving up 8 ER--including a two-run double in the 3rd that put the Nats behind (-21.1%).
  • Boy wonder: Danny Espinosa (+10.5%) has a good second game, too, going 2-4 with an RBI double and a solo shot for the early lead (+11.5%).
  • So, can we see Ramos yet? Ivan Rodriguez (-19.4%) GDPs twice to slaughter rallies, once when the game was still close in the 4th (-8.9%) and once with the bases loaded in the 6th (-6.1%).
  • Getting there: Tyler Clippard (+2.3%) goes 1.2 scoreless in relief with 2 Ks and walk.
