- Not too dominant: Jordan Zimmermann (-5.7% pitching, -10.2% hitting) seemed like he was dealing for a while over 6.1 IP, but gives up 2 ER with 6 Ks and no walks for the losing margin. At the plate, he muffs a 5th-inning sac bunt to erase a runner at third (-8.1%).
Not too hitterish: Bryce Harper (+4.6%) scores
both ofthe Nats only run safter a 6th-inning triple (+11.5%). He's thrown "out" at the plate in the first on a blown call (-4.2%).
- Not too many baserunners: Denard Span (-22.5%) hits into two double plays, including a bunt that he didn't run out, apparently thinking it was foul (-8.3%). He also drops a catchable ball that was generous scored a "double."
- Not too much WPA: Jayson Werth (-6.5%) is 2-4, but ends up negative WPA on the day thanks to the blown call at home in the 1st.
