Game 7 WPA: ALR = Spead gaem. Nats 5, Fish 0

The Nats scrape out a gutty win against the NL East leaders, ... the Miami Marlins? Bryce got his one hit, and that apparently was enough.

  • Vintage: Gio Gonzalez (+35.5%) labors a bit, but gets through 6 innings of shutout ball with 5 Ks and 2 BBs, allowing only 3 hits.
  • Sneaky fast: Adam LaRoche (+13.8%) is 3-3 with a walk, driving in the winning run in the first (+8.1%) and drawing a TOOTBLAN to divert the play from the plate.
  • Just one hit: Bryce Harper (+9.4%) is 1-4 and scores on a dropped throw to second when ALR tries to advance on a ball in the dirt (+9.9%).
  • Unappreciated by WPA: Anthony Rendon (+4.6%) is 2-4 with 3 RBI, including 2 on a booming double off the front of the visiting bullpen (on which ALR scored from first).
