  • aroooOOOOOO!  Jayson Werth (+18.2%) leads the team in WPA for game 1, going 2-4 with a second-inning RBI single that put runners 2nd/3rd on the throw (+13.6%).
  • Shaky but sufficient: John Lannan (+9.1%) takes more than 100 pitches to get through 5 innings with 2 ER, 3 BB and 2 Ks.
  • In a factory downtown: Tyler Clippard (+14.9%) puts out the fire by getting 4 outs after Chad Gaudin (-4.7%) and Doug Slaten (-12.8%) fritter away a 5-run lead and can't get out of the 6th inning.
  • Waking up? Ian Desmond (+9.6%) has a 2-RBI single (+10.2%) and steals home.
  • Shutting down: Drew Storen (+12.2%) gets the 4-out save.
