DOWN EARLY, BUT NEVER OUT
Washington battled back from an early 3-0 deficit to top Philadelphia, 5-3...the Na-tionals used a 3-run 8th inning to pull away from the Phillies...Adam LaRoche plated his 5th game-winning run (T4th in MLB/NL) in the 8th inning with an RBI-single, scoring Anthony Rendon...Tyler Moore clubbed his 2nd home run of the season, a solo shot o Cli Lee in the 3rd inning...it was Washington’s 9th come-from-behind victory of the season.
STATUS CHECK
Collectively, the Nationals oense ranks among National League leaders in average (3rd, .260), on-base percentage (3rd, .329), slugging percentage (3rd, .415) and OPS (3rd, .744)
RUNS AMOK
Despite significant injuries to Wilson Ramos, Ryan Zimmerman and Bryce Harper (they have combined to play in just 33 of 87 games), Washington currently ranks 3rd in NL/10th in MLB having scored 4.52 runs per game...only the Rockies (5.61) and Marlins (4.72) have scored more runs per contest among clubs in the Senior Circuit.
START ME UP
Over their last 13 games, Nationals starting pitchers have posted a 1.89 ERA (17 ER/81.0 IP), the best mark in MLB during that stretch...they have fanned 83 batters, tied for the best mark MLB and have allowed just 71 hits, fewest in MLB.
K STREET
Nationals pitchers currently lead MLB in strikeouts (278) and strikeouts/9.0 (9.53).Stephen Strasburg’s 14.03 SO/9.0 was the highest for a qualified pitcher in March/April since CHI’s Kerry Wood in 2001 (14.28).The last time a DC team paced MLB in strikeouts was 1919 (AL Nationals, 536).
BULL PENNINGS
Matt LeCroy’s bullpen currently ranks 3rd in MLB/3rd in NL in bullpen ERA (2.08) and 5th in MLB/4th in NL strikeouts (104)...Tyler Clippard paces the ‘pen with 20 strikeouts, good for 8th in MLB/5th in NL.
SORI, NOT SORI
Nationals’ closer Rafael Soriano is in the midst of the longest scoreless innings stretch of his career, as well as Nationals history (2005-pres.)...the veteran has tossed 23.0 consecutive scoreless innings (23 app.) dating to Aug. 27, 2013...it is the longest active streak in MLB.
7th (OR LATER) HEAVEN
From the 7th inning and beyond, the Nationals are outscoring their opponents 60-25...the 60 runs scored are 2nd in MLB/first in NL while the 25 runs allowed are good 3rd fewest in MLB.
GOOD WOOD
The Nationals, in 7 games since getting 3-hit in back-to-back losses to the Angels last week (Mon. and Tue.), are hitting .301 (91-for-302) with 27 extra-base hits (17 doubles, 2 triples, 8 home runs) and 21 walks the last 8 games.
SCORE 4 = WIN MORE
The Nationals are 14-1 when scoring 4 or more runs and, conversely, just 3-11 when limited to 3 or less runs by opposing pitchers.
SECOND AT SECOND
Thanks to the duo of Danny Espinosa (21 starts) and Anthony Rendon (8 starts), Nationals second basemen currently rank 2nd in MLB/2nd in NL with a .827 OPS (PHI is first at .924)...this stands in stark contrast to last season, when Washington’s con-tingent of second baggers combined on a .670 OPS that ranked 22nd in baseball.
MEET MATT WILLIAMS
Matt Williams, 48, was named the 5th field manager of the Nationals on Oct. 31, 2013...the managerial position is the first of his career...joins the Nationals organiza-tion after spending the previous 4 seasons on Kirk Gibson’s coaching sta in ARI...Williams hit .268 (1878-for-7000) with 338 2B, 378 HR, 1218 RBI and 997 runs in 1866 games spanning 17 decorated seasons with ARI (‘98-03), CLE (1997) and SFG (‘87-96)...Williams was a 5-time All-Star (‘90, ‘94-96, ‘99) and a 4-time recipient of the Rawlings Gold Glove (‘91, ‘93-94, ‘97) and Louisville Slugger Silver Slugger (‘90, ‘93-94, ‘97) awards...his 359 career homers as a third baseman ranks 5th on the all-time list (Mike Schmidt 509, Eddie Matthews 486, Chipper Jones 389, Graig Nettles 368). • Williams reached the postseason on 6 occasions, won 3 pennants and claimed a World Championship (2001 Diamondbacks)...in all, played in 51 postseason games/18 World Series contests...sports previous managerial experience gained with the Salt River Rafters (AFL division title, ‘12) and the Double-A Mobile Bay-Bears (skippered final 5 weeks of ‘07 after Brett Butler suered a mild stroke)...Williams’ baseball DNA traces back to his grandfather, outfielder Bert Griffi th, who was a member of the 1924 World Champion AL Nationals...born in Bishop, CA and a native of Carson City, NV, Williams is an alum of UNLV.

Griffi n (9-1) as only active pitchers who posted 9+ wins in their first 10 career decisions.During brief career, has faced 184 right-handed hitters & allowed just 4 XBH (4 2B).Has allowed only 3 homers (D.Dietrich, C.Beltran, R.Pena) in 86.1 big league innings.
