  • Stop giving up triples: Gio Gonzalez (-40.3%) gives up 6 ER in 5 IP despite fanning 8 and only walking one. I think the 10 hits didn't help.
  • Get this guy someone to drive in: Bryce Harper (+4.9%) gets yet another early lead on a solo shot in the 2nd (+11.2%).
  • Two out rally: Denard Span (+7.5%) singles in a run to get the Nats (briefly) within one with two outs in the 5th (+11.7%).
  • Today's leaders in offensive futility: Ian Desmond (-6.7%) is 0-4 with 4 Ks and 2 LOB. Jayson Werth (-9.9%) is 0-4 with 2 Ks and 4 LOB.
  • Patient: Yunel Escobar (+4.8%) is 1-2 with a pair of walks.
