Game 83 WPA: $1 Ice cream, amirite? Nats 0, MIL 4

New, 30 comments

It's like the promo guys knew how terrible this game was going to be, with the Nats unable to score off a AAAA pitcher, or have the bullpen hold down a AAAA lineup. Next time, though, make it $1 bourbon night to fully counteract the bad.

Yeah, think how WE feel.  We had to watch it.

  • Why bother? Stephen Strasburg (+42.6%) struggles about as much as you can while being dominant over 7 IP, fanning 8, walking 4, and allowing no runs.
  • There's still room for you in Harrisburg: Bryce Harper (-11.8%) has used up all my good will from last night, going 0-4 with 3 LOB (and somehow not being charged with an error in the aeyth).
  • Unpleasantly familiar: Drew Storen (-46.4%) coughs up 4 ER in his relief appearance, walking one and fanning none, putting an exclamation mark of deja vu on this FAIL! parade.
  • A bit too aggressive: Ian Desmond (-11.5%) is 1-4 with a groundout to end a first-inning rally on a 2-0 pitch in on his hands from a guy who had just walked the bases loaded.
