Gio has an exciting first, but settles down to give a quality start. Danny LaRoche comes through with hits and bombs, while TMo caps a long run of backwards-Ks with a bomb of his own.

  • Chew up your glum and spit it out: Gio Gonzalez (+7.1%) settles down after escaping a bases-loaded, no-out jam in the first, going 6 IP with 2 ER, 5 Ks, and 2 BBs.
  • I'm calling this a shout-out: Adam LaRoche (+8.7%) is 1-3 with a walk, while Danny Espinosa (+24.9%) is 1-3 with a sac fly to tie in the second (+0.6%) and a go-ahead, two-out, two-run jack in the 4th for the winning runs (+25.2%).
  • Steady: Drew Storen (+7.1%) throws a 1-2-3, shutdown 7th to hold the (at the time) one-run lead.
  • Also of note: Ryan Zimmerman (+6.9%) is 1-4 with a walk. Tyler Moore (+5.7%) is 1-4 with 3 Ks, 3 LOB, and a three-run bomb in the aeyth (+16.4%) for some welcome insurance.
