  • P2Score? Jordan Zimmermann (+13.7% pitching, +9.4% hitting) gives up 4 ER in 6 IP with 5 Ks and no walks, but goes 3-3 at the plate with a leadoff double to ignite the 3rd-inning rally (+5.7%).
  • Great, more scrubs from AA: Bryce Harper (+9.1%) goes yard in his first AB back from the DL to give the Nats the early lead (+11.1%). He also has a walk and K to cover the three true outcomes.
  • The only Nat with more hitting WPA than the pitcher: Jayson Werth (+10.4%) is 2-5 with a 2-run double in the 3rd (+10.9%), a two-run single in the 4th (+0.6%), and a run-scoring ROE in the aeyth (+0.7%).
