Close game, disappointing but it happens, sometimes EVERY #$%@@%% TIME. Whatevers.

  • It's never enough: Stephen Strasburg (+11.9%) fans 9 and walks 1 over 7 IP, giving up 2 ER. At least he didn't get a loss.
  • Big WPA without runs: Wilson Ramos (+12.3%) is 2-4 with a 6th-inning single to put runners corners (+16.6%). Anthony Rendon (+28.9%) hits a game-tying sac fly (+3.2%), but really scores the WPA with a 9th inning leadoff single (+13.3%) and a later advance to 3rd on a WP (+13.3%).
  • Not-so-invisiball: Tyler Clippard (-20.1%) gives up the go-behind solo shot in the aeyth for a meltdown (-26.1%).
  • Apparently, "choke" exists: Scott Hairston (-5.8%) is 2-3 with a pair of doubles, but pops out with the tying run on 3rd in the bottom of the 9th (-24.7%). Chad Tracy (-15.4%) follows with an easy fly ball to left to end the game.
