  • 89% success: Edwin Jackson (+44.8%) gives up a single run over 8 IP, fanning 6 and walking none (benefiting from some sparkling defense, not shown in WPA).
  • Defying RobBob to the end: Adam LaRoche (+12.2%) hits a two-run homer in the first for a lead that held up almost the whole game (+20.4%).
  • BLAME: Tyler Clippard (-78.4%) melts down epically, giving up 4 hits, a WP, a SB, and 3 runs, while only getting two outs in the 9th.
