Game 108 WPA: Are first-inning runs a jinx? Nats 1, DET 11

New, 4 comments

Today's was very much like a pleasant day at the beach on a tropical island.... during a nuclear test.

At least it's a nice day out.  Ohter than all the explosion.

  • Not so great: Gio Gonzalez (-42.9%) makes no pretenses, giving up 10 ER over the course of 10 outs, with 3 Ks and a walk to go with 11 hits, including 2 dingers.
  • Coulda been a hero: Denard Span (+11.4%) leads the Nats in WPA today, going 2-3 with a walk, an advance on a WP, and the Nats' run scored.
  • Get Larry on the phone: Adam LaRoche (-9.3%) is 0-4, but you can't blame th lackluster hitting too much when you're down almost 10 in the 4th...
