  • Does he have any strikeouts yet? Chien-Ming Wang (-6.3%) goes 6.1 IP with 1 BB and no Ks, giving up 4 ER on 7 hits.
  • The relief-pitching equivalent of Gibraltar: Tyler Clippard (+16.3%) spells Wang to get 5 scoreless outs, giving up a double to make sure we're awake.
  • Beast is a beauty: Michael Morse (+24.5%) is 2-4 with an RBI single double to get the Nats on the board in the 1st (+15.2%) and an oppo-boppo blast to tack on in the 3rd (+10.4%).
  • Too late for Lombo? Ian Desmond (+14.6%) gets in the best heroics of the night with a two-RBI single for the lead in the 1st (+17.7%).
  • Barely noteworthy: Drew Storen's utter dominance in the 9th is only worth +6.9% WPA.
