Triple threat: Gio Gonzalez (+34.7% pitching, +13.9% hitting) throws six scoreless, walking 2 and fanning 5. He also cranks a solo shot into the wind in the LF corner for the winning run, and starts a 1-4-3 double play to escape a 5th-inning jam.
- I like the new guy: Denard Span (+12.8%) is 1-2 with a pair of walks and a sharkbite-assisted RBI, not to mention flashing some range in CF.
- Showing what's he worth: Ryan Mattheus (+9.2%) preserves the one-run lead in the 7th with one of his trademark K + GDP scoreless innings.
- Back on the horse: Drew Storen (+6.8%) throws a scoreless aeyth, striking out one.
Game 2 WPA: Gio is da bomb. Nats 3, Fish 0.
So, other people may have been playing tonight, but it was all about Gio Gonzalez.
