8.20.13 – Nationals 4, Cubs 2

Stat of the Game: The Nationals had a season-high 21 men reach base safely (14 hits, seven walks), one more than the 20 they accumulated in a 14-1 drubbing of the Mets on July 28.

Under-the-Radar Performance: Drew Storen and Tyler Clippard did not allow any base runners in the seventh and eighth innings, holding onto the Nats slim 2-1 lead.

It Was Over When: Denard Span, a late-game defensive replacement, ripped a two-out, RBI single in the top of the ninth to give Washington a 4-1 advantage.
