8.22.13 – Nationals 5, Cubs 4 (13 innings)

Stat of the Game: Steve Lombardozzi hit his first career home run from the right side of the plate, a solo shot in the 7th inning.

Under-the-Radar Performance: Third baseman Ryan Zimmerman went 3-for-5 with a solo home run in the top of the 1st, which gave the Nats their fifth player with 15 or more home runs this season (Adam LaRoche 18, Jayson Werth 18, Ian Desmond 17 and Bryce Harper 17).

It Was Over When: Drew Storen stuck his glove in front of a Dioner Navarro liner, deflecting it into a game-ending 1-4-6-3 double play.
