- Loose wheel: Gio Gonzalez (-51.5%) hits the wall and bursts into flames, giving up 6 runs in the 3rd inning with one K, 2 walks, and a whole pile of FAIL over 2.2 IP.
- Brief hope: Yunel Escobar (+7.6%) doubles in a run in the first (+12.1%) to put the Nats ahead. Ian Desmond (+12.7%) cranks a huge solo bomb to double that early lead in the 2nd (+10.3%).
- The junkiest time: Danny Espinosa (+0.1%) gets a pinch-hit solo homer to lead off the 9th with the game well out of hand.
- The junkiest: Anthony Rendon (-7.5%) continues his slump, going 0-5 with 3 LOB.
