Game 90 WPA: Sometimes people just... explode. Nats 3, Others 4

"We'll always have Baltimore." (Not an actual quote.) - Joy R. Absalon-USA TODAY Sports

  • Fewer walks, please: Gio Gonzalez (-11.4%) gives up 4 runs over 7 IP on 7 Ks with 3 BBs (1 of which scored).
  • Roar: Aaron Barrett (+7.0%) earns a shutdown with 4 scoreless outs in relief, coming in to defuse a two-on, two-out jam in the 7th.
  • WPA leader: Adam LaRoche (+10.3%) is 1-3 with a HBP and a one-out double in the aeyth (+10.0%).
  • Junk-timer: Jayson Werth (-8.5%) hits a solo shot to get the Nats within two (+8.4%), but grounds out to end the game with a runner on (-8.1%).
  • Timely: Ian Desmond (+9.3%) hits a two-out RBI double to the Nats within one in the 6th (+11.7%).
  • Failtastic: Wilson Ramos (-21.6%) has a single and a bases-loaded flyout to end the aeyth (-17.6%).
