Game 72 WPA: So, I missed the game--was it good? Nats 5, Rox 1

"RAAAAAR! I STRIEKZ U OWT!!" (Not an actual quote) - USA TODAY Sports

While I was busy with some house guests, the Nats were busy putting together solid performances on the mound and at the plate. Does this mean I can't watch any more games?

  • That looks pretty decent: Jordan Zimmermann (+31.4%) goes 8 IP, striking out 9, walking 1, and giving up a single unearned run.
  • He seems like a good hitter: Ian Desmond (+8.2%) cranks a second-inning solo shot for the early lead (+11.7%).
  • Was he clutch? Kurt Suzuki (+9.9%) singles in a run with two outs in the 4th for the eventual winning run (+11.6%).
  • This I would have liked to see: Adam LaRoche (+8.7%) is 3-4 with a two-run triple in the 5th to put the game out of reach (+7.5%).
  • Miscellaneous merit: Anthony Rendon (+4.4%) is 2-4 and Denard Span (+4.1%) is 2-3 with a double and a walk.
