- Wild but true: Tom Gorzelanny (+27.5%) walks 4 in 7 IP, but fans 6 and only gives up 2 ER.
- Making adjustments: Ian Desmond (+12.3%) is 2-4 with an RBI and a triple (+9.6%) that set up the go-ahead sac fly.
- Slop cheerfully accepted: Matt Stairs (+7.6%) hits one under Wes Helm's glove, who then interferes with the runner to give Stairs a tack-on REEI (Run Error-Errored In).
- Is it June already? Adam LaRoche (+7.2%) has a two-RBI single for the early lead (+9.3%)
- Shutdown: Sean Burnett (+14.2%) pitches a perfect aeyth to preserve the Nats' 1-run lead.
