D800E for Sports

Has anyone used the D800 for sports at night at these settings: ISO 6400 and f2.8? How satisfied are you with the results? I know the D800E doesn't burst as fast as my D3s, but a lot of my football and baseball shots are timed, not burst, but I do burst in certain situations, like the double play at second base, or a close play at home. For that reason, I will use both the D800E and the D3s with the 300 and 400mm f2.8, and the D700 with the 70-200mm f2.8.

Typical quality of a play at 2nd base, high school game at night.
