Game 75 WPA: My sandwich may be a jinx. Nats 6, Rox 7

Last time I splurge for 200-level seats and get a Banh-Mi meatball sub.

The (delicious) culprit for today's loss.

  • Harenish: Ross Detwiler (-30.4%) only makes through 3.2 IP on a hail of bloops and seeing-eye singles (plus a couple of solo shots), getting tagged for 7 ER with 3 Ks and a walk.
  • Clown clutch*: Ryan Zimmerman (+5.5%) hits a two-run single-plus-error in the aeyth to get the Nats within 3 (+4.7%).
  • Catcher clutch*: Jhonatan Solano (+17.0%) has a two-run, pinch-hit double in the ayeth to get the Nats within 1.
  • Not clutch*: Ian Desmond (-11.2%) is 1-4 with a walk, but strikes out with the tying run in scoring position to end the aeyth (-9.6%).
  • Unappreciated by WPA: Ian Krol (+0.8%) racks up six straight outs in relief, with 4 Ks. Fernando Abad (+3.3%) strikes out 2 in his own scoreless inning of relief.

*If clutch existed.
