ZIMMERMAN’S 2-RUN SHOT IN SWEET 16TH RENDERS 4TH STRAIGHT WIN
Ryan Zimmerman mercifully hit a 2-run shot in the 16th inning to lift Washington past the Brewers, 4-3, on Tue. at Miller Park in the longest game (by innings) in Nationals (2005- ) annals…Zimmerman’s first career extra-inning blast was made possible by a 7-reliever collaboration that lasted 10.0 scoreless innings (10 hits, 5 BB, 6 SO)...Washington’s defense turned 3 double plays, and individually, Ian Desmond made 2 dazzling 6-3 putouts in the 5.5 hole, while Denard Span made a game-saving catch at the wall in the 14th...Anthony Rendon’s 12th homer, a solo shot in the 8th, tied the score, 2-2, and ultimately sent the game to extra innings...the victory was the Nationals’ season high-tying 4th straight and it snapped a 7-game losing streak in extra innings...the Nationals improved to 3-1 all-time in games lasting 15+ inning.
THE SUMMER WIND
In 4 games since summer’s arrival, June 21, Matt LeCroy’s ‘pen is 1-0 with 4 holds, 4 saves and a .077 (4-for-52) batting average against thanks to 17.2 scoreless innings...the bullpen’s scattered 4 hits and 5 walks, while striking out 15 in the same 4 games.
2 DOZEN DANDIES
Not only are the Nationals 16-8 (.667) in 24 games dating to May 30 (the start of their home series vs. TEX), they’ve outscored their opponents 104-60 in that span.
KEEPING SCORE ON THE SEASON
The Nationals are tied for MLB’s 3rd-best run differential at +45 (307 for, 262 against)...MLB’s top 5: OAK (+126), SEA (+52), Washington (+45), LAA (+44), LAD (+40).
SCORE 4 = WIN MORE
The Nationals are 34-3 when scoring 4 or more runs and, conversely, just 7-32 when limited to 3 or less runs by opposing pitchers.
WITH > WITHOUT
With Ryan Zimmerman in the starting lineup this season, the Nationals are 19-11 and average 4.9 runs per game (146 runs, 30 contests)...in 46 games sans Zimmerman, Washington has averaged of 3.5 runs a game (161 runs, 46 games) and is 22-24.
NATIONALS STAFF EARNS GOLD OR SILVER IN MANY STATISTICAL CATEGORIES
Washington’s 2.96 staff ERA leads the MLB (OAK ranks 2nd at 3.11)...Nationals pitch-ers also rank among MLB’s top 2 in these categories: fielding-independent pitching (first, 3.06), fewest earned runs allowed (first, 228), fewest walks allowed (first, 193), walks/9.0 inn. (first, 2.50), home runs allowed (first, 47), homers allowed/9.0 inn. (first, 0.61), SO/BB ratio (2nd, 3.24/1) and fewest blown saves (2nd, 5).
THE ‘PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN ...
At 2.36 (62 ER/236.0 IP), Washington relievers pace MLB in bullpen ERA...the bull-pens of the Padres (2.47) and Giants (2.65) and rank 2nd and 3rd, respectively.
BETTER LEATHER
Washington has committed just 3 errors in 17 games dating to June 7...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 19May (26 games) .................................... .980 20 13June (22 games).................................... .991 8 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 46 home runs hit by Washington infielders (11 from 1B, 7 from 2B, 13 from 3B, 15 from SS) this season rank 2nd in MLB behind only the Blue Jays (50) infield.
 
ADAMANT ABOUT ADAM
Adam LaRoche ranks 3rd in MLB with a .424 on-base percentage...a closer look:

POP FROM THE TOP
Denard Span (23 doubles, 5 triples, home run) currently leads all big league leadoff hitters with 29 extra-base hits...COL’s Charlie Blackmon (27) ranks 2nd.
PHAT FARM
The .556 winning percentage (189-151) 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.

Gets the nod as the Nationals & Brewers cap the series.
• AGAINST THE BREWERS:
 Was dominant in only start against MIL, on July 2, 2013 in DC, but did not get a deci-sion in a 4-0 setback...tossed 7.0 scoreless innings, scat-tering 3 hits and 4 walks...struck out 8 and required just 105 pitches...however, Washington’s previously hot bats were silenced by Wily Peralta (5.1 scoreless inn.) and 4 Brewers relievers...Juan Francisco’s 2-run double in the 8th snapped a scoreless tie and lifted MIL to victory.
• LAST START:
 Left in line for the loss, but did not get a de-cision, in Fri.’s 13-inn. 6-4 setback vs. ATL...went 6.0 inn., allowing 4 runs on 9 hits...walked zero, fanned 8, threw 107 pitches...spit the hook thanks to A.Rendon’s game-tying 2-run shot with 2 outs in the 9th off C.Kimbrel.Is burdened by .360 BABIP which ranks last in MLB (quali-fied pitchers) and is 63 “points” higher than NL average.
NL-best 10.9 K/9.0 inn. rank 2nd among all qualfied pitchers in ‘14...ranks among NL leaders in strikeouts (first, 121), K/BB ratio (first, 6.1/1), FIP (2nd, 2.35) & starts (tied 2nd, 16).
Fri.’s start at ATL (4 ER in 6.0 inn.) ended string of 11 straight quality starts (and a 2.22 ERA), which set a career high. When starting, Washington is 52-39 (.571)...for career, when getting 3+ runs of offensive support, Washington is 37-4.
