Game 54 WPA: Doom. Nats 0, Os 2

New, 12 comments

Haren pitches a pretty good game, but the Nats apparently have never batted before and their inexperience showed. The Nats are now .500 at the 1/3 mark and 5-6 games out of both the division and the WC. Doom.

  • Three runs too many: Dan Haren (+14.9%) gives up 2 ER over 7.1 IP, fanning 5 and walking none.
  • And your WPA leader: Ian Desmond (+1.2%) has a 2nd-inning bunt single to put runners 1st/2nd (+5.7%).
  • Your biggest WPA FAILs: Chad Tracy (-15.8%) is 0-3 with a 2nd-inning flyout too shallow to score the runner from 3rd (-7.9%). Kurt Suzuki (-11.7%) is 0-3, popping out on the next at bat (-6.2%).
  • An advantage of no baserunners? Fewer LOB! This Nats lose this game at the plate, hitters combining for -59.3% WPA.
