- Pitch to the hero, punks! Ryan Zimmerman (+11.9%) is 1-2 with 3 BBs and a go-ahead solo HR in the 3rd (+11.3%).
- Loose bodies lost: Jason Marquis (+17.4%) gives up only 2 ER in 6.1 IP, striking out 2 and walking none.
- Left on base: The Nationals strand 12 runners, with the non-Zimmy part of the order combining for -64.0% WPA.
- Close, but no close: Drew Storen (-16.0%) works a scoreless 9th with a tie score, but loads the bases without making an out in the 10th. Sean Burnett (-6.3%) manages to get two outs before allowing the game-losing single.
