  • Both been better: Jason Marquis (-14.1%) and Todd Coffey (-19.9%) combine to give up an astonishing 15 hits in 5.2 IP, although it only costs 4 runs. Mind you, Marquis (+13.1% hitting) had a run-scoring bunt-ROE for the Nats' first tally (+16.5%).
  • Steadying up: Sean Burnett (+10.3% pitching, +1.9% hitting) comes on to finish the 6th and get two outs in the 7th, drawing a walk and scoring a run in between.
  • H3r0? It's true: Jerry Hairston (+33.7%) was 3-3 with a walk and a go-ahead RBI double in the 6th (+18.1%).
  • We're not calling these comebacks: Ian Desmond (+18.2%) is 2-3 with a walk, 2 SB, and a go-ahead RBI single in the 5th (+13.8%).
