Padres 6, Nationals 5
HIGHEST WIN EXPECTANCY 61 percent
Synopsis: One of the lasting images of the season: Yunel Escobar grounding into an inning-ending double play with one out and the bases loaded, with the Nationals trailing by one run. Although the Nationals never led, they trimmed the deficit to one in the seventh. The Nationals had the momentum thanks to Bryce Harper’s two-run single. But because Manager Matt Williams believes in an aggressive approach in 3-0 counts, the signal was on for Escobar. The Nationals had done well in that situation, but here it backfired.
