- Perfectly coiffed: Bryce Harper (+43.3%) cranks a solo shot to right to get the Nats on the board with two down in the first (+10.2), then follows up with a majestic, two-out grand slam to dead center in the third to put the Nats ahead (+30.5%).
- This is just stat-padding: Ryan Zimmerman (+0.9%) swats his own soaring grand slam the other way in the ayeth to put the game away (+2.0%).
