4.11.13 – Nationals 7, White Sox 4

Stat of the Game: A batter (Bryce Harper) was intentionally walked in front of Ryan Zimmerman for the second time in four years, after which Zimmerman swatted a two-run double to open up a three-run advantage.

Under-the-Radar Performance: Harper reached base four times, thanks to a pair of walks and singles, raising his batting average to .417 and on-base percentage to .447.

It Was Over When: The White Sox had closed the gap to two runs at 6-4, but Ryan Mattheus froze Paul Konerko with a 3-2 slider for strike three to strand two runners in scoring position and end the sixth inning, after which point Chicago would not threaten again.
