Cardinals 8, Nationals 5
HIGHEST WIN EXPECTANCY 89 percent
Synopsis: Joe Ross walked six batters in a short outing. Still, the Nationals had a 5-3 lead entering the eighth inning. Drew Storen’s inning: single, hit-by-pitch, fielding error, intentional walk, game-tying double. Then Manager Matt Williams made a decision that drew criticism: He bypassed Jonathan Papelbon in a tie game on the road, instead turning to Casey Janssen despite his large workload the previous day. Janssen gave up the walk-off, three-run home run to Brandon Moss in the ninth.
