  • SRSLY, FIVE ACES? U CHEETR!! Tanner Roark (+4.5%) fans four and walks none over 6 IP, giving up 2 ER.
  • Early offense: Adam LaRoche (+10.8%) hits a two-run single in the first after the Nats manage to load the bases on walks with no outs (+13.1%).
  • Well, it WAS a full moon: Jayson Werth (+19.8%) is 2-4 with a walk, a solo shot in the fifth to tack on (+8.9%) and more insurance in the 9th with a two-out, two-RBI single (+4.5%).
  • Steady: Drew Storen (+11.3%) holds the two-run lead in the 7th for a shutdown, while Tyler Clippard (+7.4%) gets one of his own with a scoreless aeyth.
