  • Peripherals-defying: John Lannan (+10.5%) somehow makes it through 5.1 IP with 3 BBs and 4 hits while only striking out one and holding the Fillies to a single unearned run.
  • Hot in the heat: Tyler Clippard (+21.1%) holds the one-run lead through 2 scoreless innings of relief.
  • Angry h3r0: Laynce Nix (+7.7%) hits a 3rd-inning solo shot to give the Nats the lead (+12.8%) and makes a spectacular, bases-loaded, diving catch to save the lead in the 6th (+12.1%, albeit credited to the pitcher Slaten).
  • Stare at it! Drew Storen (+15.6%) seals the series win with a backwards-K for the save.
