(What do these graphs mean?)

  • Better than ever: Stephen Strasburg (+24.9% pitching, +2.9% hitting) fans 12, walks none, and gives up 1 run in 7 IP. He's 3-3 at the plate.  Oh, yes!
  • Decisive: Wilson Ramos (+16.3%) smacks a double to right to drive in two for the early lead and the winning runs with one out in the 2nd (+18.8%).
  • Blame, atonement: Ryan Zimmerman (+0.5%) is 2-4 with a GDP to limit a 3rd-inning rally (-6.3%), an RBI double in the 5th (+7.7%) and an RBI single in the 7th (+1.3%).
  • I really want to believe it: Ian Desmond (+10.0%) is 2-3 with a walk and a two-out RBI single in the 3rd (+7.2%).
