- So long, farewell, good night: Jordan Zimmermann (-38.2%) lops another $1M off his next contract, giving up 6 runs in 5 IP with 6 Ks and 2 walks. MAT's misplay aside (-30.5%), he'd still be on the hook for at least 3 runs.
- Make it respectable! Jayson Werth (+10.7%) singles in a run with two down in the first to give the Nats a brief lead (+10.1%), and later smacks a solo shot to pad his stats with the game well out of hand (+2.9%).
- Who's the failin'est? Yunel Escobar (-10.4%) is 0-4 with 2 LOB and a GDP, while Bryce Harper (-5.3%) is 0-4 with 3 Ks, and Michael Taylor (-5.2%) is 0-4 with 2 Ks and 3 LOB.
