- As good as a Roark start! Stephen Strasburg (+10.1%) allows 2 runs in 7 IP with 9 Ks and 1 walk.
- Now we'll never get him out of the leadoff spot: Michael Taylor (+8.0%) leads off the game with a solo shot (+10.5%).
- Did you see the double play he started in the 9th? Daniel Murphy (+12.9%) drives in a game-tying run to spark a 4th-inning rally (+16.8%).
- Put him back in the two-spot! Danny Espinosa (+20.5%) hits a two-out, two-run bomb to cap the 4th-inning rally with the eventual winning tally (+20.3%).
- Interesting: Blake Treinen (-7.8%) earns a meltdown in the aeyth, giving up a two-run bomb (-15.0%), but (narrowly) holds the lead.
- Okay, I was worried: Jonathan Papelbon (+18.4%) gets one of his bigger shutdowns of the season so far with a scoreless 9th, aided by Murph's nifty 4-6-3.
