  • Send in the clowns: Jordan Zimmermann (-19.3%) gives up 4 ER in 6 IP, mostly due to Bernadina and Werth watching a two-run bloop drop between them in the fourth (-24.4%).
  • ANGRY PATIENCE: Laynce Nix (+34.1%) is 2-4 with a triple (+9.4%) and a game-tying, RBI walk (+21.6%).
  • Sorry about the misplayed bloop: Jayson Werth (+33.0%) is 1-3 with 2 RBI and 2 walks, plus a 10th-inning steal of 3rd (+13.0%) and the game-winning run on a WP (+17.6%).
  • Rock-steady: Tyler Clippard (+10.3%), Henry Rodriguez (+13.2%), and Drew Storen (+13.2%) combine to keep the game tied for three shutout innings in relief.
  • Make up for the misplay later: Roger Bernadina (-17.9%) is 1-5 with 4 LOB.

(Tip of the Nats cap to Mrs. Doghouse for the title.)
