Game 43 WPA: Vintage! Nats 1, Pads 2

NN gets his classic level of run support as the Nats struggle to find a way to lose, eventually deciding to run themselves out of the game.

  • Another wasted CG: Jordan Zimmermann (-1.0% pitching, +10.3% hitting) goes 8 IP, fanning 6 and walking none, giving up a single ER. Too bad the losing unearned run got in scoring position from his errant pickoff throw. He also singled and reached on error on a sac bunt.
  • Hero/not-hero: Steve Lombardozzi (+2.0%) drives in the tying run in the 6th (+16.5%), as well as GDPing to squelch a first-inning rally (-7.2%), and gets caught stealing twice, including the back end of a strike 'em out, throw 'em out in the 9th (-12.6%).
  • Streaking: Adam LaRoche (+4.6%) is 1-3 with a walk. Kurt Suzuki (+6.0%) is 1-2 with a walk.
  • More unhelpful people: Denard Span (-23.2%) hits into a fluky circus-baserunning DP after bouncing a line-drive off the pitcher to defuse a runners 2nd/3rd scoring chance in the 3rd (-16.5%). Ryan Zimmerman (-16.9%) is 0-3 with the front of the 9th-inning K+CS DP (-10.3%). Ian Desmond (-16.6%) is 0-4.
  • Not the worst today! Danny Espinosa (-8.3%) is 0-3 with 2 Ks.
