Game 22 WPA: P2K > P2C (Buy the shirt). Nats 8, Reds 1

Gio throws 8 strong innings (P2K!! Buy the shirt!), Espinosa celebrates his birthday with a couple of bangs, and the Nats generally play a game full of competent baseball.

  • Seriously, buy the shirt (<- this is a link): Gio Gonzalez (+20.2%) strikes out 7 and walks 2 over 8 IP, giving up a single ER.
  • You say it's your birthday? Danny Espinosa (+16.5%) celebrates with a 2-4 day, with a RBI double for the lead in the 2nd (+12.8%) and a two-run jack into the home bullpen to tack on in the 3rd (+3.9%).
  • It's my birthday, too, yeah: Bryce Harper (+9.1%) is 2-3 with a walk, a double, and a 3rd-inning solo shot (+7.6%).
  • Still my favorite: Denard Span (+7.0%) is 3-5 with an RBI single for the winning tally in the 2nd (+8.8%) and a two-RBI triple that barely moved the needle in the aeyth (+0.4%).
