Most grassy weeds are difficult to selectively control in a lawn. You might like to look at the photos and info (including control) for grassy weeds in our website's Plant Diagnostic. (We are the UMD's Home and Garden Information Center and we're the part of Extension that specializes in helping homeowners.) We're at http://extension.umd.edu/hgic. In Plant Diagnostics, look under Lawn, then Weeds, then Grassy weeds, Spring-Fall. You probably have Orchard Grass.
