  • Getting there: Stephen Strasburg (+12.3%) goes 7 IP, with 4 Ks and 2 BBs, giving up a game-tying 2-run dinger in the 6th (-25.8%).
  • Almost enough: Ian Desmond (+3.7%) belts a 4th-inning, two-run homer for the early lead (+24.8%).
  • Can we just say I already apologized? Adam LaRoche (+11.7%) is 2-3 with a pair of walks.
  • Steadfast relief: Drew Storen (+10.1%), Ian Krol (+12.8%) and Rafael Soriano (+12.8%) earn shutdowns with scoreless 7th, aeyth, and 9th innings, respectively.
  • Squeezed: Craig Stammen (-31.5%) can't keep it tied after a leadoff double, the go-behind run eventually scoring on a squeeze play (-18.1%).
  • Tonight's failing at the plate: Anthony Rendon (-15.9%) is 0-5, Jayson Werth (-13.3%) is 1-5 with a K to lead off the 11th (-8.3%), and Roger Bernadina (-13.2%) is 0-2, flying out to end the game (-9.1%).
