- Hitter-friendly zone: Jacob Turner (-7.5%) makes it through 5 1⁄3 innings with a K, 3 walks, and a HBP before giving up the go-behind, 3-run bomb (-23.5%) and getting pulled.
- Not a meltdown: Matt Albers (-5.5%) comes in to a two-on, no-out situation in the 7th and lets in three runs, but the WPA hamsters don’t downcheck him because the Nats hadn’t kept it close enough.
- Top of the order not tops: Trea Turner (-8.6%), Jayson Werth (-7.5%), Bryce Harper (-9.5%), and Ryan Zimmerman (-6.8%) combine to go 0-15 with a walk.
