- Stop pitching to contact: Jordan Zimmermann (-24.1%) gives up 6 ER in 6.2 IP with 5 Ks (including striking out the side in the 6th) and no walks.
- True outcomes: Laynce Nix (+2.7%) is 1-3 with a strike out, a walk, a no-hit-breaking solo dinger (+4.4%) following my heroic jinxing of Nolasco in the 5th.
- Terrible but irrelevant: Henry Rogriguez (-1.3%) records a single out in the 9th and is responsible for 5 ER, stretching out of agony of a lost game for that much longer.
- No other beasts: Michael Morse (+4.0%) is the only other batter with positive WPA, hitting an RBI double for the Nats' other run (+7.7%).
