Game 159: I want to return these bookends

Tonight's game report: Home closer is 7-1 loss.



  • Not MLB-ready: Ross Detwiler (-29.8%) only lasts 4.2 innings against the now-sober B-team, giving up 4 HR, 2 BB, and 7 ER.
  • Prototypical: Nyjer Morgan (+0.9%) is 1-3 with a walk and the Nationals' only run.
  • Not a good farewell: Adam Dunn (-5.1%) is 0-4 with 4 Ks.

Edited to add: Didn't mean to make this unnecessarily gloomy.  It wasn't a great game, but we've seen some exciting baseball and even some good baseball this season.  I'm looking forward to putting up more graphs that end in the Nats column.  BEAT THE METS!
