Today's game story: Nats shut out Fish 4-0.


Via FanGraphs

  • Tightrope-walking renaissance man: Stephen Strasburg (+29.7% pitching, +17.5% hitting) pitches in and out of jams, allowing 7 baserunners but no runs over 6 IP with 1 walk and 7 Ks. He goes 1-1 at the plate with a walk and an RBI single for the lead (+16.2%).
  • Other hitters: Steve Lombardozzi (+6.9%) is 2-4 with an RBI to extend the Nats' lead to 2 (+11.3%). Michael Morse (+6.7%) is also 2-4 with an RBI to put the Nats up by 3 (+5.9%).
  • Way too interesting: Tyler Clippard (+1.4%) tiny WPA total belies loading the bases with no outs (-15.3%) before getting three quick outs (+16.7%), including a near-clown play for out #3.
