Game 123 WPA: Again with the LOB! Nats 1, RFB 2

That's how close it was. You're killing me, Nats.

The RISP failure was pretty staggering today, plus the umps were in a hurry to hand out a save and get home. What can you do?

  • Enjoy your loss: Gio Gonzalez (+2.7% hitting, -11.6% hitting) fans 9 and walks 4 over 7 IP, giving up 2 ER.  He's 0-3 at the plate with 4 LOB, including a popped-out bunt.
  • Like a leadoff hitter: Denard Span (+10.5%) is 3-5... with 2 LOB.
  • Getting going? Bryce Harper (+2.5%) is 2-4 with a double and a walk... and 3 LOB, striking out on the second dubious check-swing call in the 9th to end the game (-7.5%).
  • Aroo: Jayson Werth (-4.8%) has an RBI single to get the Nats on the board in the 7th. (+19.1%). He also has 5 LOB and a CS to cut short the 7th-inning rally on the back end of a strike 'em out, throw 'em out DP (-9.6%).
  • Forget the apology: Adam LaRoche (-25.3%) is 0-4 with 5 LOB, including a runners-corners K with one out in the 7th (-13.1%).
