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.
4.10.13 – Nationals 5, White Sox 2
Stat of the Game: Ian Desmond continued to hit the ball hard, driving two doubles and a triple to account for three of Washington’s five extra-base hits on the night.
Under-the-Radar Performance: Jordan Zimmermann quieted the White Sox bats, allowing two runs over 7.0 innings of work to earn his second victory in as many starts.
It Was Over When: After the White Sox closed the gap to one in the top of the sixth, Washington got RBI knocks from Danny Espinosa and Denard Span to provide the final margin. Chicago would not see the tying run reach the batter’s box the rest of the game.
4.6.13 – Nationals 7, Reds 5 (11 innings)
Stat of the Game: The Nationals belted five home runs, including two by Wilson Ramos, more than doubling their season total to date (from four to nine).
Under-the-Radar Performance: Ross Detwiler did not factor in the decision, but he quieted the Cincinnati bats to the tune of just a single unearned run over six strong innings of work.
It Was Over When: Ian Desmond and Ramos each homered in the top of the 11th, and Craig Stammen set down Jay Bruce swinging in the bottom half to strand the tying run at second base.
