A lot like this, yeah.

  • His strike-throwing intrigues me: Doug Fister (+19.2%) fans five and walks none in 7 IP, giving up 2 ER.
  • Keep pitching to Zim, punks: Ryan Zimmerman (+6.2%) is 1-3 with a walk, including a game-tying RBI single in the first (+11.0%).
  • Beardly powers: Jayson Werth (+11.9%) hits a go-ahead RBI single in the 5th (+8.2%), while Adam LaRoche (+11.6%) puts a stamp on the game by lofting one into the home bullpen for a two-run dinger one batter later (+16.9%).
  • I wish to subscribe to their newsletters: Tyler Clippard (+6.8%) and Rafeal Soriano (+6.6%) both earn shutdowns with scoreless aeyth and ninth innings in relief, respectively. Each fans two over 1-2-3 innings.
