Game 110 WPA: More good baseball? Nats 3, MIL 0

New, comments

That was another good game. Haren pitched well, the Nats had both small- and long-ball runs, and the bullpen was airtight. A fan could get used to this.

  • Ace? Dan Haren (+43.2% pitching, +4.8% hitting.) throws 7 shutout innings with 6 Ks and 2 walks. He is 1-2 at the plate with a HBP.
  • Someone should talk about this: Jayson Werth (+10.6%) continues to be awesome on offense, going 2-3 and getting into position to score the winning run on the front end of a double steal in the second (+4.8%).
  • Stat padderz: Wilson Ramos (+6.3%) and Adam LaRoche (+3.8%) hit a pair of meaningless junk-time solo shots in the 5th (+11.6%) and 6th (+9.5%), respectively.
  • Shutdown: Tyler Clippard (+6.0%) throws a perfect aeyth, with a K and 2 groundouts.
  • Didn't need them anyway: The top 3 spots in the order go 0-12 with 2 Ks and -21.8% WPA.
