  • Could be sharper: Stephen Strasburg (+24.3%) strikes out 10 but walks 2 and gives up 2 ER in 7 IP.
  • Contributing: Bryce Harper (+11.3%) hits an RBI single to get the Nats on the board (+10.0%).
  • Rock steady: Sean Burnett (+11.2%) and Tyler Clippard (+14.6%) record shutdowns in the 8th and 9th to close out the win.
  • Clown WPA counts, too: Ryan Zimmerman (+3.1%) is 0-3, but his big contribution is a run-scoring ROE run-scoring ROFC in the 1st (+8.4%). Ian Desmond (+4.4%) singles in the eventual winning tally (+7.0%), although it stretched the lead to 3 runs at the time, so I'm not counting it as clutch (which doesn't exist anyway).
