- Strike 'em out, ground 'em out: Tanner Roark (+27.6%) throws 8 scoreless, fanning 11 and walking none. I believe the technical term for that is, "pretty frickin' bueno."
- Ahead of the game: Anthony Rendon (+15.3%) provides all the offense the team would need, and he does it early so we all could relax, blasting a two-run dinger into the second deck in LF on the second AB of the game (+17.6%).
- Still making a case: Danny Espinosa (+8.9%) takes one for the team with a base-loaded HBP in the 6th (+3.2%).
- Just wait until his power is back: Wilson Ramos (+8.9%) bounces one over the wall in the 6th for a RBI, ground-rule double (+9.1%).
