- Quality starts are for suckers: Jordan Zimmermann (-8.2%) lets in four runs in 5.2 IP with 7 Ks and a walk, but with is ridiculous run support today, it's plenty.
- Already earning back respect: Ryan Zimmerman (+12.2%) is 1-2 with a pair of walks and an RBI double to get the Nats on the board and support his brother in the first (+10.1%).
- It looks like a line drive in the score book: Ian Desmond (+6.4%) Baltimore-chops an RBI single with two outs to tie it in the third (+12.7%).
- Jam up the middle infield all you can: Danny Espinosa (+23.4%) hits a bases-clearing double to put the Nats up by 3 with two down in the third (+27.1%).
- Junk time! Wilson Ramos (+10.6%) belts a solo shot in the 5th for the eventual winning tally (+7.6%). Anthony Rendon (+8.3%) hammers a three-run jack to pad his stats later in the inning (+8.3%).
