- Sporting gentleman: Gio Gonzalez (-25.0%) keeps giving up the lead as fast as the Nats can get it to the tune of 4 runs allowed in 5+ IP with 5 Ks and a walk, getting yanked with two on and no out in the 6th before he can cough it up again.
- Quick out of the gate: Wilson Ramos (+2.0%) singles in a run to get the Nats a fleeting lead with two down in the first (+9.2%).
- Not a record. Means nothing: Jayson Werth (+32.8%) is 2-3 with a walk, a double, and a no-doubt, two0out, three-run bomb off the back of the visiting bullpen to put the Nats back ahead in the 2nd (+26.0%).
- The un-jammer: Matt Belisle (+15.5%) comes on in the 6th to clean up Gio's mess and strands both runners to earn a shutdown.
- Back in the hits: Daniel Murphy (+12.1%) interrupts his recent doldrums at the plate with an RBI double to put the Nats ahead for good in the 5th.
- This is just excessive: Anthony Rendon (+11.5%) plates a pair of insurance run with a double of his own a couple of batters after Murphy (+10.4%).
- Also coming up big, pitching-wise: Shawn Kelley (+8.1%) gets the last out in the 7th to strand two more runners then stays in to throw a scoreless aeyth and earn his own shutdown.
