Game 50 WPA: Salvage job. Nats 5, PP 2

Okay, more wins, please. - Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Fister did okay, the bullpen was solid in relief, and the offense scored a viable number of runs. We could have used a few of them in any of the other games in this series....

  • Doing okay: Doug Fister (+11.5%) goes 5.1 IP with 4 Ks and no walks, giving up only 1 ER.
  • Quick start: Denard Span (+19.4%) doubles to lead off the game (+6.6%), later scoring on a WP to put the Nats ahead (+9.3%). Ian Desmond (+8.8%) singles in a second run in the first to extend the Nats' lead (+9.3%).
  • Making adjustments: Anthony Rendon (+17.1%) is 1-3 with 2 walks, an advance on a CS/defensive interference (+1.4%), an RBI triple (+8.4%), and a run scored on a WP (+2.2%).
  • The real hero of the game: Craig Stammen (+8.1%) comes on after Fister to get six outs, giving up 1 ER and earning a shutdown.
  • I got to heckle Kolko again: Jayson Werth (-8.8%) is 2-5 with 4 LOB.
