Game 113 WPA: Better to be lucky than good. Nats 1, RFB 2

Skill ain't enough, guys. - Greg Fiume

Best of all to be both, but the Nats far more outstripped on the former than the latter tonight. The BABIP, the sequencing... insane.

  • LOSER! Gio Gonzalez (+5.8%) strikes out 5 and walks 1 over 7 IP, giving up an insurmountable 2 ER. Give a guy some support, Nats!
  • Next time charge the mound: Bryce Harper (+12.1%) is 2-4 with an incredibly bush-league HBP and a third-inning solo shot for a brief lead (+12.8%).
  • Tonight's awfulest: Wilson Ramos (-14.1%) is 0-4 with 2 LOB, while Adam LaRoche (-14.2%) is 1-3 with a walk and an inning-ending, bases-loaded groundout in the 7th (-15.5%).
