Stras was good, the bats were hot early, and we finally got to relax a bit.

  • Where my strikeouts at? Stephen Strasburg (+8.9%) only strikes out 4 while walking one over eight innings of one-run ball.
  • Early rally: Jayson Werth (+3.8%) singles in a run to tie it in the 3rd (+6.9%).
  • Consistent rallier: Ian Desmond (+17.2%) is 3-4 with a two-RBI single to put the Nats ahead later in the 3rd (+10.0%).
  • WPA ran low quickly: Asdrubal Cabrera (+9.6%) is 1-3 with a walk and a 3-RBI double to cap the 3rd-inning rally, putting the game into a comfortable place (+7.4%).
  • Prototypical 8-hole hitter: Denard Span (+10.7%) is 1-3 with a walk and a SB.
