Didn't get to watch last nights game, but Olney said the following about it:

6. From ESPN Stats and Info, how Edinson Volquez put the San Diego Padres in a position to win:

A) He threw 20 curveballs, and Nationals hitters did not swing at any of them. That is the most pitches without inducing a swing on any pitch type since the start of the 2009 season.
B) Nationals hitters were 1-for-10 with four strikeouts in at-bats ending with his changeup.
C) Threw 50 of 96 pitches (51 percent) on the outside part of the plate, and Nationals hitters were 0-for-11 in at-bats ending with a pitch in that location.
