Game 45 WPA: Rotation depth is a problem. Nats 0, SF 8

Holes in the roster are proving to be quite painful, as bad pitching and punchless offense combine to keep to the circus in town.

  • Failure: Zach Duke (-17.0%) strikes out 1 and gives up 4 ER in 3.1 IP of an unimpressive spot start.
  • Compound failure: Craig Stammen (-10.9%) allows 2 of Duke's ER in his 2.2 IP, adding 2 more of his own.
  • And the pitchers shall lead them: So, the WPA leaders on offense? Duke (+1.3% hitting), going 1-1 with a single, and Stammen (+0.9%), who walked in his PA.
  • FAIL: Take out the pitchers and the Nats were 2-29 with a walk (-24.1%).
