Fister was awfully good tonight... for a P2C guy. Also, Rendon seems to be a talented hitter. Did you know he had more walks than strikeouts in college?

  • Right guy, right time, right stuff: Doug Fister (+45.5%) throws 8 innings of shutout ball, albeit with only 3 Ks and a walk!!
  • Right guy, right time(s), right stuff: Anthony Rendon (+18.5%) is 3-4 with a two-out, RBI single in the 3rd for the winning run, plus a two-out, RBI double in junk time to put the Nats up by 3 (+5.4%).
