- Started too fast: Jordan Zimmermann (+1.2%) has three dominant innings and three less so, giving up 2 ER with 9 Ks and 2 walks.
- Useless (at the plate): Jose Lobaton (-25.1%) and Danny Espinosa (-29.9%) are 0-13 with 4 Ks and 5 LOB.
- All-star buzz: Anthony Rendon (+25.7%) is 3-7 with a game-tying, aeyth-inning solo shot that just floated over the wall in right center (+26.1%).
- Keeping it close: Aaron Barrett (+10.4%) earns a shutdown with a scoreless aeyth, while Craig Stammen (+13.3%) gets one with a scoreless ninth.
- Only a bit helpful: Jayson Werth (-28.2%) is 0-7 with 3 LOB and a first-inning RBI groundout (-0.9%). Okay, and a nice catch to end the 14th.
- Rather useful: Ross Detwiler (+53.4%) gets a big shutdown, pitching four (4!) scoreless innings in extras with 2 Ks and 1 walk (intentional).
- Still rolling: Drew Storen (+13.3%) and Tyler Clippard (+13.3%) gets their shutdowns with a scoreless 14th and 15th innings, Clipp's with a bit more drama.
- All of a sudden: Ryan Zimmerman (+37.5%) recovers his flair for the dramatic, cranking a go-ahead, two-run dinger out to left center in the 16th (sixteenth!) inning (+42.1%) to cap his 3-7 night. He has a nice diving catch in the gap in the bottom of the 16th.
- Last man standing: Rafael Soriano (+8.7%) gets the final shutdown of the night just as the bullpen goes empty.
