Stras was good, the bats were adequate, the defense sparkled, and the bullpen was... good enough.

If only he could win on the road...

  • Work on the command: Stephen Strasburg (+38.5%) throws 7 scoreless with 5 Ks, but TWO WALKS! TWO!!
  • Extra bases: Jose Lobaton (+6.6%) doubles to lead off the 5th (+9.0%). Nate Schierholtz (+14.7%) drives him in one AB later with an RBI triple to put the Nats ahead (+17.8%).
  • Happy Tony Two-Bags Day: Anthony Rendon (+6.2%) is 2-4 with a 5th-inning RBI double for the eventual winning rub (+7.8%) and some ZImmerman-esque defense at the hot corner.
  • Unlikely setup man: Craig Stammen (+7.1%) throws a 1-2-3 ayeth to earn a shutdown.
  • Matty is trolling us: Rafael Soriano (+7.0%) gives up 4 hard-hit balls and a run, but holds on to the lead in the ninth for a shutdown.
