- 2,000 Ks and counting: Max Scherzer (+26.4%) gives up 1 run in 7 1⁄3 IP with 10 Ks and a walk, leaving with 2 on.
- New leadoff hitter? Brian Goodwin () bounces one off the back wall of the home bullpen in RF to put the Nats ahead in the first (+9.9%).
- BOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Oliver Perez (-11.1) can’t defuse Max’s mess, allowing a double steal then walking his only batter faced anyway. Blake Treinen (-27.7%) lets in all 3 inherited runners and one more.
- I wouldn’t have guessed these two were the last to leave the party: Daniel Murphy (-11.3%) and Matt Weiters (-11.0%) combine to go 0-7 with 2 Ks and 3 LOB.
