Game 52 WPA: Who needs Harper? Nats 9, Os 3

You know, I was totally serious about the LaRoche apology article, but I really think ALR is getting to be kind of a jerk about it with all the hitting and whatnot.

  • Welcome to the bigs: Nathan Karns (-16.0%) goes 4.1 IP in his MLB debut, walking 2, fanning 3, and giving up 3 ER.
  • Didn't look as good as it reads: Zach Duke (+9.1%) gets an 8-pitch win and a shutdown in relief, coming on to defuse a 5th-inning jam and pitch a scoreless 6th.
  • Hey, relax, I'll GET TO IT: Adam LaRoche (+26.6%) is 2-3 with a walk, a 3-run bomb for the early lead (+22.4%) and a junk-time solo shot to keep padding his stats (+0.6%).
  • Another greedy jerk: Tyler Moore (+21.3%) hits a go-ahead, two-run jack in the 4th (+22.4%), leaving much less WPA for Roger Bernadina (+6.3%) when he goes yard in the next AB (+7.9%).
