Game 130 WPA: Time for remedial IF. Nats 4, KC 6

New, comments

Well, Haren struggled then recovered. The bullpen was shaky but did what it was supposed to. The bats kept up. Then people forgot to cover the bases. TWICE.

Give the other team 5 outs in an inning and YOU'RE GOING TO LOSE.

  • Oops: Dan Haren (-11.8%) is first-half Bad Dan in the 1st, where he gives up his 4 ER, but then he settles down to go 7 IP with 4 Ks and 1 BB.
  • RIzzo's worst mistake ever: Denard Span (+16.1%) is 4-5 with a two-out solo shot in the 7th than may have provide inspirational for other hitters later that inning (+5.9%).
  • Gibsonesque? Bryce Harper (+23.8%) is 2-5 with a two-run, two-out, game-tying HR in the 7th (+29.1%). I think he just hit it out to he wouldn't have to run hard after fouling that ball off his foot.
  • Goat herd: Craig Stammen (-32.1%) can't keep it tied in the aeyth, failing to cover first on what should have been the third out. The go-behind run later scores when Ryan Zimmerman (-13.0%) doesn't cover 3rd to get a force-out after Ian Desmond (-13.1%) can't field a low liner cleanly (-24.6%).
  • Also unhelpful: Wilson Ramos (-14.1%) throws out a runner in the first, but is 0-4 with a GDP and 3 LOB.
