- Unearned: Max Scherzer (-3.1%) is in a little too long and unlucky, giving up one run in 6.2 IP with 7 Ks and a walk before giving up the go-behind run on an error.
- Out the long way: Bryce Harper (+9.8%) is 2-4 with a double and a game-tying solo shot with two outs in the 4th (+14.0%).
- Extremely unhelpful: Matt Thornton (-16.1%) struggles get the last out in the 7th, too, cashing in both inherited runners and one of his own to put the game out of reach and earn a richly deserved meltdown.
- Faces of the franchise: Ryan Zimmerman (-6.6%) and Anthony Rendon (-16.5%) combine to go 0-8 with 3 LOB.
- Trying: Yunel Escobar (+6.1%) is 2-4 with a double.
