Game 84 WPA: Another boring blow out. Nats 4, Rox 3

Remember, kids, clutch doesn't exist. - Mitchell Layton

Fister seemed shaky, but steadied up. The bats seemed destined for many LOB and GDP, but put a few over the wall, instead. And the bullpen was only slightly interesting.

  • Soldiering through: Doug Fister (+4.7%) gives up 3 ER over 7 IP with 5 Ks and no walks. Tonight, it's enough.
  • Warming back up: Jayson Werth (+13.0%) is 2-4 with a two-run shot just over the wall in left center to get the Nats within one in the 4th (+15.7%).
  • Timely: Ian Desmond (+35.6%) is 2-3 with a game-tying RBI single in the 4th (+12.9%) and a go-ahead solo shot in the 7th (+23.6%).
  • Dealing: Tyler Clippard (+11.4%) gives up a hit but fans two for a scoreless aeyth and a shutdown.
  • I was never worried: Rafael Soriano (+15.1%) gives up a walk and a hit but allows no runs for a shutdown 9th.
