- The wall came quick: Gio Gonzalez (+9.8%) throws six innings of one-unearned-run ball with 8 Ks and a walk before leaving with the bases loaded and no outs in the 7th (two of his runners would score).
- Big inning: Daniel Murphy (+13.4%) gets the Nats on the board with a two-out RBI single in the first (+11.7%). Danny Espinosa (+10.5%) follows up with an RBI HBP (+8.6%), while Jose Lobaton (+14.5%) adds a two-RBI single to put the Nats up 4-0 (+11.4%).
- WPA may be ageist: Jayson Werth (+1.8%) gets no credit for robbing a home run in the third, and barely any for a solo blast of his own in the 5th (+1.0%).
