  • Good at pitching: Stephen Strasburg (+38.0% pitching, +7.0% pitching) throws 7 scoreless with 7 Ks and no walks. That's some pretty good pitching, right there. At the plate, he's 1-1 with a sac bunt and a two-out, RBI single in the 7th (+7.1%).
  • Best 8-spot hitter in baseball: Denard Span (+9.7%) doubles in a run in the first to get the Nats on the board (+13.1%).
  • Buffalo, charging: Wilson Ramos (+14.2%) is 1-3 with a walk a solo shot to left-center in the 5th to put the Nats up by 2 (+12.1%).
