Chad Qualls got a strikeout and a knockdown on the same play.
Back on June 1, the AP unveiled a list of 10 players who were off to slow starts but were likely to bounce back quickly _ some thinly veiled advice for fantasy players, if you will.
Werth wound up with a two-out, two-run double when Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez lost a ball in the sun to spark a six-run fourth inning Monday, and Washington beat Milwaukee 12-2 to cut its magic number for winning the NL East to five.
The players are either way past their prime _ consider former All-Star Shawn Green, who retired five years ago _ or minor league prospects, such as 6-foot-7 slugger Nate Freiman.
The Washington Nationals and the New York Mets have played 38 innings in the last seven days. The scouting reports needed on the opposition, at this point, have become minimal.
Bryce Harper homered his first time up in New York, then hit a tiebreaking single to key a six-run burst in the 10th inning Monday night that sent the Washington Nationals over the Mets 8-2.
A year ago at this time, Dan Uggla looked lost. The Atlanta second baseman was hitting well below .200 and had been nothing like the slugger the Braves had traded for during the offseason. Then in July, Uggla began swinging the bat better. In fact, he went on a 33-game hitting streak that lasted well into August, highlighting one of the season's most stark turnarounds. By the end of the year, Uggla had a career-high 36 home runs.

Mets manager Terry Collins delivered a simple message to his team before its first game since owner Fred Wilpon's frosty comments about three of the club's biggest stars were published.
Mets third baseman David Wright has a stress fracture in his lower back that is expected to keep him out a couple weeks, though the team is awaiting a second opinion before deciding whether to put him on the disabled list.
The New York Mets have to stay an extra day in the Rockies because their series finale was postponed by a mixture of rain and snow.
Limping out of the clubhouse Wednesday morning, Dexter Fowler was headed straight home to recline on the couch and ice his bruised left knee.
Mets first baseman Ike Davis left in the fifth inning of New York's 4-3 win over Colorado on Tuesday night after he strained his left calf when he appeared to trip over third baseman David Wright's foot as the two closed in on a pop up by the Rockies' Troy Tulowitzki.
New York first baseman Ike Davis said he feels fine despite being diagnosed with valley fever, a fungal infection that is released from the dirt in desert regions of the Southwest and can cause extreme fatigue.
"Obviously surgery is an athlete's nightmare, but I've had one surgery _ on my wrist _ and it worked out really well and it came back better than I was before," Davis said. "If it's gonna get me on the field again obviously that's something we have to do."
