  • Settling back in: Gio Gonzalez (+46.9%) throws 7 scoreless with 7 Ks and 2 walks. That's about what it takes to get a win these days on the Nats rotation.
  • Rather dramatic: Anthony Rendon (+39.1%) is 3-4, socring on a wild pitch to put the Nats ahead in the 6th (+15.0%) and hitting a double and an RBI triple in the aeyth (+14.7%).
  • Better luck tonight: Ian Desmond (-12.9%) is 0-4 with 2 Ks and 4 LOB.
