Like old times: Jordan Zimmermann (+21.7%) gives up 1 run in 7 IP with 5 Ks and 3 walks. Enjoy your no-decision!
- Young man strength: Bryce Harper (+1.6%) hits a game-tying solo shot to lead off the 7th (+21.4%).
- Old man strength: Denard Span (+28.4%) cranks a go-ahead solo shot in the aeyth (+31.0%).
- Meltdown: Aaron Barrett faces one batter in the aeyth and gives up the game-tying solo shot (-32.3%).
- Shutdown: Matt Thornton (+9.8%) keeps it tied in the aeyth.
- Meltdown: Matt Grace (-37.7%) gives up the walkoff in the 9th, although Desi's error doesn't help.
- And yet, unhelpful: Yunel Escobar (+0.9%) somehow manages a positive-WPA night, going 1-2 with a walk, a HBP, a SB, a pickoff, and a CS to end a 9th-inning rally (-9.7%).
