- Not so bad: Gio Gonzalez (+10.3%) gives up 2 runs in 6.1 IP, with one of his inherited runners also scoring later, with 4 Ks and 2 walks.
- Score early: Jayson Werth (+7.6%) hits a two-out, RBI double in the first to put the Nats up by two (+10.5%).
- Score often: Anthony Rendon (+24.7%) hits a two-run dinger to put the Nats ahead in the fourth (+19.9%). Wilson Ramos (+12.5%) belts a solo shot in the 6th (+8.3%).
- So... that happened: Jonathan Papelbon (-85.0%) has a spectacular meltdown, giving up a two-run lead and exiting with the bases loaded having recorded no outs in the 9th.
- End this misery: Oliver Perez (-6.4%) earns his own afterthought of a meltdown, getting one out after Paps' exit before allowing the losing run and saving us from extras.
