Jerry Meals is a bum. Not to make the obvious joke, but he must have been late for dinner... Stras is robbed again.

Don't look smug, JINXER!

  • Inefficient: Stephen Strasburg (+21.3%) gives 0 ER (1R) over 6 IP with 10 Ks and 2 walks. Enjoy your no-decision!
  • Jinxer: Ryan Zimmerman (+1.6%) hits a first-inning solo shot for the early lead (+10.7%).
  • Balky: Bryce Harper (+11.9%) overcomes his malfunctioning leg servos by going 1-3 with a bases-loading, aeyth-inning walk (+11.4%).
  • Shutdown: Drew Storen (+8.5%) walks one but has a scoreless 7th.
  • Unapologetic: Adam LaRoche (+15.3%) is 1-4 with a 9th-inning single to put runners corners with the Nats down by one (+20.7%).
  • Meltdown: Tyler Clippard (-58.1%) can't hold the lead in the ayeth, giving up the tying and go-behind runs.
  • BAAAAAAAA: Wilson Ramos (-25.1%) is 0-4, including a 9th-inning backwards K with runners corners (-21.2%). Anthony Rendon (-16.2%) is 1-4, but Ks to end the game with the tying run on third (-15.8%).

So, is HP Ump Jerry Meals a bum, or what?

Well, his zone was a bit tight most of the night:





However, he seems to have expanded his zone quite a bit on a few pitches... for the Fillies.  Hmm, what pitches were those?



"I'm missing Matlock!  Everything is a strike!"

Verdict: BUM!
