Today's game story: Stras scoreless through six.
- Nothing left in the tank: Stephen Strasburg (+20.7% pitching, +11.6% hitting) only gets through 6 scoreless innings on 6 Ks and a walk, with a two-RBI single for the winning margin (+12.1%).
- Was Drake in the dugout? Adam LaRoche (+13.9%) continues to confound all nay-sayers, going 2-3 with a walk and a two-RBI single that scored Stras (+11.7%).
- Stras + ALR = WPA Hogs: Craig Stammen (-0.2%), Sean Burnett (+3.5%), and Drew Storen (+2.7%) give up one across the last three innings, each striking out 1 in some surprisingly non-heart-attack-inducing relief work that was worth no particular WPA of note.
