ROARING 20
Not only are the Nationals 12-8 in 20 games dating to May 30 (the start of their home series vs. TEX), they’ve outscored their opponents 90-57 in that span.
WORKING OVERTIME
The Nationals scored 4 10th-inning runs and ultimately topped the Mets, 9-7, on Opening Day at Citi Field...however, since that season-opening win, Washington has dropped 7 straight extra-inning contests...the only longer extra-inning streak the Nationals have endured is an 8-game slide from July 25, 2007 - Apr. 17, 2008.Washington has been outscored 14-6 in extra innings this season.
HOT AT HOME
The Nationals have won 7 of 10 games at Nationals Park dating to a 9-2 victory over the Rangers on May 30...during this 10-game surge, Washington has outscored its opponents, 54-31, thanks, in part, to a 12-4 advantage in home runs.
SCORE 4 = WIN MORE
The Nationals are 32-3 when scoring 4 or more runs and, conversely, just 5-32 when limited to 3 or less runs by opposing pitchers.
WITH > WITHOUT
With Ryan Zimmerman in the starting lineup this season, the Nationals are 15-11 and average 5.1 runs per game (132 runs, 26 contests)...in 46 games sans Zimmerman, Washington has averaged of 3.5 runs a game (161 runs, 46 games) and is 22-24.
BEST IN (THE) SHOW SINCE MAY 1
At 3.08 (136 ER/397.1 IP), Washington’s pitching staff leads MLB in ERA since May 1...the Athletics (3.14) and Mariners (3.16) rank 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
Washington’s season-long 3.11 ERA leads the NL and ranks 2nd in MLB to OAK (3.00).
THE ‘PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN ...
At 2.56 (62 ER/218.1 IP), Washington relievers rank 2nd in MLB in bullpen ERA...the Padres (2.53) currently lead the big league pack, while the Giants (2.73) rank 3rd.
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, 3.10), fewest earned runs allowed (first, 225), fewest walks allowed (first, 178), walks/9.0 inn. (first, 2.46), ERA (2nd, 3.11), home runs allowed (2nd, 47), homers allowed/9.0 inn. (2nd, 0.65), SO/BB ratio (3.32/1), stolen bases against (2nd, 23) and fewest blown saves (tied 2nd, 5)
.
BETTER LEATHER
Washington has committed just one error in 13 games dating to June 7...as the sea-son 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 19May (26 games) .................................... .980 20 13June (18 games) .................................... .991 6 2
POWER FROM THE PIVOT
The Nationals pace MLB in home runs (22) hit by middle infielders (COL is 2nd with 20)...15 of these 22 middle-infield homers have been hit by shortstops (Ian Desmond 14, Zach Walters 1), 7 by second basemen (Danny Espinosa 6, Anthony Rendon 1).The 44 home runs hit by Washington infielders (10 from 1B, 7 from 2B, 12 from 3B, 15 from SS) this season rank 2nd in MLB behind only the Blue Jays (49) infield.
 
POP FROM THE TOP
Denard Span (22 doubles, 5 triples, home run) currently leads all big league leadoff hitters having produced 28 extra-base hits...COL’s Charlie Blackmon (26) ranks 2nd.
CENTURY NOTE
Greg Dobbs is just 2 pinch hits shy of becoming just the 20th player in MLB history to record 100 career pinch hits...Dobbs tallied career pinch hit #98, a 9th-inning single, Sun. at STL...Rusty Staub ranks 19th on the all-time list with exactly 100 pinch hits.
PHAT FARM
The .545 winning percentage (171-143) posted by the Nationals’ minor-league sys-tem ranks 5th among MLB’s 30 franchises...the Nationals system has registered a winning record each of the last 6 complete seasons (2008-13)...the only team in MLB with a longer such streak in their minor-league system is the Giants.Harrisburg CF Michael Taylor is batting .333 (86-for-258) with 12 doubles, 2 triples, 17 home runs, 52 RBI, 33 walks and 17 stolen bases in 68 Eastern League con-tests...Taylor’s corresponding 1.007 OPS leads Double-A...an elite defender, Tay-lot was drafted by Washington in the 6th round as a shortstop in 2009.
