  • Working both sides: John Lannan (+9.2% pitching, +19.5% hitting) goes a shaky 6.1 IP, striking out 6 but walking 4 and allowing 2 R, 1 earned.  Also, he went 2-3 with a two-run dinger in the 2nd for the winning margin (+18.6%).
  • Clutch: Sean Burnett (+14.9%) comes in to defuse a one-out, RISP jam with a grounder and a K.
  • Not fallible: Tyler Clippard (+13.3%) throws yet another clean aeyeth in a one-run game [yawn].
  • Other than the pitchers: Danny Espinosa (-8.7%) is 0-5 with 3 Ks.  Ian Desmond (+4.7%) is 1-1 with three walks.  I think Hairston did something, too.
