Game 53 WPA: Well, it's a different way to lose. Nats 6, Os 9

It's not every game a player can hit 3 bombs and be on the losing side. I guess NN decided to regress his FIP and xFIP all in one game. Still, you should win the games you've won, Nats, not find ways to lose them.

  • P2K sounds good now, huh? Jordan Zimmermann (-53.1%) must be wishing he'd missed more bats, as he gets 3 Ks and 1 BB over 6+ IP, getting blooped, bled, and wall-scraped to the run of 7 ER.
  • A bit too late: Tyler Clippard (-23.0%) fans 2 after relieving NN in the nightmarish 7th, but not before cashing in an inherited runner to go behind and then a two-run shot to put the game out of reach.
  • Overshadowed: Ryan Zimmerman (+33.9%) tried to help his brother out with 3-4, 3 HR day, but he could have used more people on base in front of him.
  • Not an adequate Harper replacement: Tyler Moore (-11.6%) is 0-4 with 4 LOB.
