BROOM BRIGADE
Nate McLouth’s pinch-hit sac fly capped a 3-run 7th inning and Washington’s come-from-behind 6-5 win, Wed. at Nationals Park…with the 2-game sweep, the Nation-als have now won 8th straight games over HOU (4-0 in 2014, including a trio of one-run victories)…the Nationals swiped a season-high 5 bases...with the win, Washington’s cushion in the NL East improved to 1.5 games (largest since April 10).
SAINT ANTHONY
In Wed.’s 6-5 win over his hometown Astros, Anthony Rendon swiped a pair of bases (both in the first inning) and his 7th-inning solo shot ignited the Nationals’ de-cisive 3-run 7th inning...per Elias Sports Bureau, Rendon joined fellow infield mates Ian Desmond (July 8, 2012 vs. COL) and Danny Espinosa (May 12, 2012 at CIN) as the only 3 Nationals (‘05-pres.) to homer and steal multiple bases in a single game.
HOT AT HOME
The Nationals have won 7 of 8 games at Nationals Park dating to a 9-2 victory over the Rangers on May 30...during this 8-game run, Washington has outscored its op-ponents, 50-22, thanks, in part, to a 10-3 advantage in home runs...this is Washing-ton’s finest stretch of success in DC since going 8-1 at home from Aug. 9-29, 2013.
EXCELLENT 18
Not only are the Nationals 12-6 in 18 games dating to May 30 (the start of their home series vs. TEX), they’ve outscored their opponents 86-48 in that span.
SCORE 4 = WIN MORE
The Nationals are 32-2 when scoring 4 or more runs and, conversely, just 5-31 when limited to 3 or less runs by opposing pitchers.
KEEPING SCORE ON THE SEASON
The Nationals own MLB’s 3rd-best run differential at +39 (289 for, 250 against)...MLB’s top 6: OAK (+132), SFG (+47), Washington (+39), LAD (+38), LAA (+36), SEA (+36).
WITH > WITHOUT
With Ryan Zimmerman in the starting lineup this season, the Nationals are 15-9 and average 5.3 runs per game (128 runs, 24 contests)...in 46 games sans Zimmerman, Washington has averaged of 3.5 runs a game (161 runs, 46 games) and is 22-24.
STAFF PICKED UP SLACK WHILE GONZALEZ WAS ON THE MEND
Gio Gonzalez was placed on the 15-Day DL, May 18, but rejoined the roster for Wed.’s start vs. HOU...at the time Gio was placed on the DL, Washington ranked 19th in MLB with a 3.99 ERA from its starting pitchers...during Gio’s 27-game leave from the rotation, Nationals starters went 14-10 with a MLB-leading 2.41 ERA (47 ER/175.2 inn.) and 20 quality starts...Washington currently ranks 5th in MLB with a 3.37 starters’ ERA...Washington’s starters since May 18: Doug Fister (5-1, 2.58 ERA, 6 GS), Tanner Roark (3-3, 1.85, 6 GS), Stephen Strasburg (3-2, 2.50, 6 GS), Blake Trein-en (0-2, 2.89 ERA, 4 games/3 starts), Jordan Zimmermann (3-2, 2.36, 6 GS).
BEST IN (THE) SHOW SINCE MAY 1
At 3.05 (127 ER/375.1 IP), Washington’s pitching staff leads MLB in ERA since May 1...the Mariners (3.09) & Athletics (3.19) rank 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
Washington’s season-long 3.09 ERA leads the NL and ranks 2nd in MLB to OAK (3.03).
THE ‘PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN ...
At 2.54 (59 ER/209.1 IP), Washington relievers pace MLB in bullpen ERA...the bull-pens of the Padres (2.60) and Mariners (2.70) rank 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
NATIONALS PITCHERS EARN GOLD OR SILVER IN MANY STATISTICAL CATEGORIES
Nationals pitchers current rank among MLB’s top 2 in the following pitching cat-egories: fielding-independent pitching (first, 3.14), fewest earned runs allowed (first, 216), fewest walks allowed (first, 174), walks/9.0 inn. (first, 2.49), ERA (2nd, 3.09), home runs allowed (2nd, 46), homers allowed/9.0 inn. (2nd, 0.66), SO/BB ratio (3.26/1), stolen bases against (2nd, 20) and fewest blown saves (tied 2nd, 5)
.
BETTER LEATHER
As the season has progressed, the Nationals’ fielding percentage has risen while their error totals and unearned runs allowed have steadily declined...a closer look:
 MONTH FIELDING% ERRORS UNEARNED RUNS
 Mar./Apr. (28 games) ....................... .975 26 19 May (26 games) ................................ .980 20 13 June (16 games) ............................... .990 6 2
POWER FROM THE PIVOT
The Nationals pace MLB in home runs (21) hit by middle infielders (COL is 2nd with 20)...14 of these 20 middle-infield homers have been hit by shortstops (Ian Desmond 13, Zach Walters 1), 7 by second basemen (Danny Espinosa 6, Anthony Rendon 1).The 412home runs hit by Washington infielders (10 from 1B, 7 from 2B, 11 from 3B, 14 from SS) this season rank 2nd in MLB behind only the Blue Jays (45) infield.
