Nats Recaps: Doghouse's WPA Posts + More

Washington, D.C. resident Doghouse takes a look at how each game was decided, play-by-play, pitch-by pitch

NLDS Game 4 WPA: Mistakes were made. Nats 2, SF 3

70

Bad pitching, bad fielding, bad hitting, worse umpiring. Not a great way to end the post-season.

NLDS Game 3 WPA: Hope lives. Nats 4, SF 1

50

Fister was just what we needed, and Ramos sparked the clowniest of run-scoring bunt plays for the win.

NLDS Game 2 WPA: HATED IT. Nats 1, SF 2

10

I stayed for all of it. I hated it. I'd stay again. (And hate it again.)

NLDS Game 1 WPA: Shaky. Nats 2, SF 3

48

The boys looks a little, but start to shake it off towards the end.

Game 162 WPA: Just some win. Nats 1, Fish 0

16

We always used to joke about, "what does NN have to do to get a win? Throw a no hitter?" He showed us...

Game 161 WPA: Finish strong. Nats 5, Fish 1

11

Stras dealt, the "A" pen dealt, the defense bobbled a little, but the bats were enough.

Game 159 WPA: Not ST again... Nats 7, Fish 15

9

Guys I never heard of pitching, clownish fielding, a pointy-ball-looking score... Are we in Viera?

Game 159 WPA: Fister'd! Nats 3, Fish 0

7

Doug responds rather directly to dc_roach with a complete game shutout...

Game 158 WPA: MOAR P2K!! WOO! Nats 3, Mets 0

13

So, what's one difference between tonight's win and this afternoon's loss? Could it be FOURTEEN STRIKEOUTS?!

Game 157 WPA: P2K is better. Nats 4, Mets 7

+

Who was the most effective pitcher today? Was it the one who struck out 5 batters? I think it was.

Game 156 WPA: ¡Al Rojo Vivo! Nats 4, Mets 2

2

The Nats enjoy their first home appearance since clinching the division with a solid start, sufficient hitting, and adequate relief.

Game 155 WPA: Humming along. Nats 2, Fish 1

42

Stras was good, the bats were adequate, the defense sparkled, and the bullpen was... good enough.

Game 154 WPA: The Brothers Zimm. Nats 3, Fish 2

3

The Brothers ZImm tell a pretty good story tonight.

Game 153 WPA: Not that close. DC 3, Fish 2

2

A solid night where the Nats were "comfortably" ahead despite it being close all game.

Game 152 WPA: What a fourth! Nats 6, Fish 2

3

A good game for the Nats with a tremendous offensive and defensive fourth inning.

Game 151 WPA: 'Cuse 4 Lyfe! Chiefs lose 1-3

4

I don't care, FP, I'm calling it a triple-A lineup.

Game 150 WPA: Merry Clinchmas! Nats win 3-0

11

Desmond was pretty clutch tonight, or at least he would have been if clutch existed.

Game 149: New Narratives. Nats win 4-2.

101

Strasburg pitched well and the offense scattered enough runs across the game. Soriano was not good.

Game 148 WPA: Drive to five. Nats 3, Mets 0

48

Matty isn't resting many regulars yet, and the Nats respond by pitching and hitting well.

Game 147 WPA: Hit parade. Nats 10, Mets 3

2

Fister got a relaxing and effective enough start in, the bullpen got some work in, and the hits kept on coming.

Game 146 WPA: Free passes and LOB. Nats 3, Mets 4

11

Gio lost this one with free passes in the first. The Nats failed to pick him up by hitting into a ton of GDPs.

Game 145: ALR 3, Mets 2 (Nats 6, Mets 2)

48

Tanner and the bullpen did well, but LaRoche keeps up with the RBIs.

Game 144 WPA: Sori's back, baby! Nats lose 6-2

9

I know, but Soriano threw a scoreless inning! Ready to close again, amirite?

Game 143 WPA: STREKE!! Nats win 6-4

1

NN gets some run support to go with the unearned runs and good things happen.

Game 142 WPA: The return of CD3K! Nats win 2-1

29

Fister was solid, the bullpen bobbled only slightly (Storen was nails), and the bats did enough to win.

Game 141 WPA: Balk, balk, baAAAALLKK! Nats 3, FF 2

50

Gio was good enough, the defense over some early clownishness, the offense was good enough, and the bullpen was nails. That's prestigious.
