Game 115 WPA: Just like old times. Nats 9, FF 2

New, comments

Tonight we saw patient at bats against a struggling pitcher, long balls, multi-hit rallies, dominant starting, shutdown relief, and some nifty defense. And we saw it from the Nats.

I fought the urge to put a mocking picture of Bambi here, but Haren earned his spot.

  • Figured it out? Dan Haren (+16.8%) fans 7 and walks none, giving up 2 ER over 7 IP.  Amazingly, that was enough to get a win tonight.
  • #Ready: Anthony Rendon (+14.0%) is 2-3 with a walk and two-run bomb in the 2nd for the early lead (+14.5%).
  • Stat padder: Ryan Zimmerman (+10.2%) is 1-4 with a walk and a solo shot later in the 2nd for the eventual winning run (+8.3%).
  • Miscellaneous doublery: Wilson Ramos (+9.7%) is 2-4 with a two-out, RBI double in the 5th (+4.6%), while Adam LaRoche (-1.1%) is 2-4 with an RBI double in the 3rd (+5.0%).
