4.12.13 – Braves 6, Nationals 4 (10 innings)

Stat of the Game: Ross Detwiler delivered another stellar outing, not allowing his first earned run of the season until there were two outs in the seventh inning, a string of 12.2 innings overall to begin the season.

Under-the-Radar Performance: After swiping just one bag in the season’s first nine game, The Nationals stole four times without getting caught Friday night, with four different players – Ian Desmond, Byrce Harper, Denard Span and Jayson Werth – each notching a steal.

It Was Over When: Ramiro Pena’s two-run home run cleared the wall in right field to put Atlanta ahead in the top of the 10th inning.
