Game 59 WPA: Roark's legend continues. Nats 6, Pads 0

Pretty frickin' bueno. - Denis Poroy

Roark adds a pile of strikeouts to this grounderz-first approach, adding to his power even more! Also, Rendon seems to have made his adjustments. It was even a nice outing for Detwiler.

  • Strike 'em out, ground 'em out: Tanner Roark (+27.6%) throws 8 scoreless, fanning 11 and walking none. I believe the technical term for that is, "pretty frickin' bueno."
  • Ahead of the game: Anthony Rendon (+15.3%) provides all the offense the team would need, and he does it early so we all could relax, blasting a two-run dinger into the second deck in LF on the second AB of the game (+17.6%).
  • Still making a case: Danny Espinosa (+8.9%) takes one for the team with a base-loaded HBP in the 6th (+3.2%).
  • Just wait until his power is back: Wilson Ramos (+8.9%) bounces one over the wall in the 6th for a RBI, ground-rule double (+9.1%).
