Game 53 WPA: Save some for Sunday, guys. Nats 9, TEX 2

We celebrate our d!ng3rz. - Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Stras looked pretty good, the relief was lights-out, and the bats... well, the bats were busy.

  • Strike 'em all out! Stephen Strasburg (+6.7%) is a bit uneven with 2 unearned runs (thanks to his own fielding error) in 6 IP, but he fans 9 and only walks one.
  • BOOM! Ian Desmond (+32.0%) hits a two-out, three-run bomb six rows back over the big wall in right-center to put the Nats ahead in the fourth (+36.9%).
  • Pinch goodness: Tyler Moore gets the most of his AB this game, yanking a two-out, two-run double into the LF corner to put the Nats up by 4 in the 6th (+10.2%).
  • Unappreciated by WPA: Denard Span (+5.1%) is 3-5 with some heads-up baserunning to get the Nats on the board in the first (+6.3%).  Wilson Ramos (-2.2%) is 2-3 with a walk. Jayson Werth (1.9%) is 3-5.

Tonight's WPA graph brought to you by runs. Woo-hoo!
