- Chief executive: Joe Ross (+27.4%) fans 11 (eleven) hitters and walks one in 7.1 IP, giving up one run. Not bad for being the throw-in, right?
- ¡Vamos! Wilson Ramos (+13.2%) is the hitting WPA winner, going 2-4 with a two-out, RBI double in the first for the eventual winning tally (+9.7%) and an RBI single in the 3rd to put the Nats up by two (+5.5%).
