Game 49 WPA: Countdown to 100 losses at 75. Nats 2, PP 3

He threw okay, but not perfectly. - Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Look, you have to score runs to win, right? Stras threw pretty well, but he can't score runs from the mound. Hit more, Nats!

  • Quality is insufficient: Stephen Strasburg (-28.3%) stays in about 3 batters too long, giving up 3 ER over 7 IP with 7 Ks and 2 BBs.
  • Other people need to hit, too: Ian Desmond (+11.7%) cranks a solo shot out to LF to put the Nats haead in the 4th (+15.3%).
  • Okay, more people than this: Wilson Ramos (+11.1%) has an RBI bloop single to put the Nats back on top in the 5th (+17.4%).
  • Not the bounceback we want: Denard Span (-14.2%) is 0-5 with 2 LOB.
