Game 15 WPA: Boss Detwiler. Nats 6, Fish 1

Detwiler deals, Suzi rakes, and Zombie Bryce Harper swings his bat in search of delicious braaaaaains. The bullpen isn't interesting at all, which is just how we like them.

  • Like a boss: Ross Detwiler (+25.7%) strikes out 5 and walks 1 over 7 IP, giving up a single ER due to a missed call on a play at the plate.
  • baZOOKa: Kurt Suzuki (+14.6%) is 2-3 with a ground-ball triple and a fifth-inning solo shot to put the Nats ahead by 3 (+8.5%).
  • Also, good defense: Ian Desmond (+8.6%) is 1-4 with a single to put runners corners in the second (+9.8%) and a stolen base to set up consecutive sacrifices for the Nats' first 2 runs.
  • BRAAAAIIINNNSS: Zombie Bryce Harper (+6.5%) claws his way out of the grave to go 4-5 with a double and an RBI. The substantially more-alive Adam LaRoche (+6.2%) is 2-4 with an RBI.
