- Shakily sufficient: Gio Gonzalez (+14.3%) walks 3 and only fans 2 in 7 1⁄3 IP, giving up 2 runs (1 earned), plus an inherited runner scored later.
- The resurgence of Two-Bags? Anthony Rendon (-8.7%) doubles in a run to tie it in the first (+9.8%).
- Not helpful: Koda Glover (-9.3%) cashes in Gio’s inherited runner to lose the lead and earn a meltdown in the ayeth.
- REALLY not helpful: Blake Treinen (-34.8%) only gets two outs into the 9th, giving up the go-behind run and leaving with the bases loaded.
- Hero time all the time: Bryce Harper (+98.7%) is 3-5 with a two-run bomb to left to put the Nats ahead in the 3rd (+21.3%), and two-out, three-run blast onto the batter’s eye with a 3-2 count for the walkoff (+82.8%).
