This morning's game story: Danny + Shark = Eventual Win
- Over half a game! Ross Detwiler (+24.6%) throws 7 innings of 2-run ball, with 2 Ks and 2 BBs.
- R-E-L-I-E-F: The bullpen records 4 straight shutdowns from Tom Gorzelanny (+19.7%), Michael Gonzalez (+10.8%) , Ryan Mattheus (+13.9%), and Drew Storen (+8.1%) as they keep it tied from 8th through the 11th.
- Top is not tops: The first 4 hitters in the Nationals lineup are 0-19 with a walk and -70.2% WPA among them.
- Just enough: Roger Bernadina (-1.0%) is 0-2 with 2 walks, one of which put him on for Danny Espinosa (+22.1%) to score on a game-tying, two-run dinger in the 2nd (+18.6%). Michael Morse (+5.8%) is 1-5 with a crucial leadoff double in the 12th (+17.1%) to put a runner on so Danny can get the go-ahead RBI later in the inning (+16.8%).
- Saved: Tyler Clippard (+20.3%) gets another "interesting" save with a walk, a hit, and a strikeout in the inning, although he gets the WPA for the Shark's spectacular game-ending catch (+17.2%).
