Tonight's game story: Strasburg struggles, Nats are terrible.
- Not messianic: Stephen Strasburg (-14.5%) gives up 2 ER (3 R) over 4 IP with only 3 Ks but no BBs.
- Trying: Wilson Ramos (+10.5%) is 2-4 with a pair of RBIs. Jayson Werth (3.1%) hits a solo shot in the aeyeth (+7.5%).
- Unhelpful: Ryan Zimmerman (-16.8%) is 1-5 with 4 LOB and a rally-killing GDP in the 3rd (-12.9%).
- Also unhelpful: Collin Balester (-13.0%) continues to make the case for DFA by giving up 2 BB, 0 K, and 3 ER while only recording 1 out.
