Washington took advantage of Miami's bullpen, scoring runs in the sixth, seventh, and eighth innings for their two-run win.

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports


Bryce Harper (WAS) +31.8%

Harper drew walks in the first and third innings, singled in the fifth, and hit a two-run, eventual game-winning homer in the seventh to score Anthony Rendon.

Stephen Drew (WAS) +30.9%

Drew hit a two-out, pinch-hit home run off Bryan Morris in the bottom of the sixth inning to tie the game at two runs apiece.

Tom Koehler (MIA) +26.9%

Koehler faced 26 batters over 5.2 innings. He gave up six hits and five walks for an in-game WHIP of 1.941, striking out four Nats and giving up just one earned run (Jose Lobaton was inherited by reliever Bryan Morris, but allowed to score). Koehler finished with a GameScore of 52.
