Game 138 WPA: Like baseball, only sloppier. Nats 9, FF 6

Surprisingly, these are NOT the Nats! - Brian Garfinkel

This was sloppy-[donkey] baseball tonight, with walks and errors and all kinds of foolishness. But the Nats won, so I won't complain too much.

  • Messy: Gio Gonzalez (+1.0%) walks 3 and fans 6 over 5.2 IP, giving up 4 R (1 ER) thanks to three errors behind him.
