Game 35 WPA: So, Desmond's pretty good. Nats 7, Cubs 2

Detwilers scatters hits and walk none on the way to a quality start, while RBI-happy guys up the middle combine to notch more than enough runs to win.

  • At least go 7 if you're gonna P2C: Ross Detwiler (+5.0%) goes 6.2 IP, fanning 2 and walking none, but giving up 2 ER on 8 hits.
  • Production in the 8-spot: Kurt Suzuki (+20.5%) hits a two-run double to put the Nats ahead in the 2nd.
  • Slugger at SS: Ian Desmond (+29.9%) is 3-4 with a go-ahead, two-run bomb in the 4th, and an RBI double to tack on in the 5th (+7.4%).
  • Other batting merit: Danny Espinosa has a two-out, two-run double in the 5th (+6.6), while Adam LaRoche (+3.4%) is 2-4.
