Game 36 WPA: A bit of a letdown. Nats 3, As 4

This was going perfectly when I fell asleep. Can't I trust you guys to do anything? This was Roark, people! ROARK!!

Yeah, well this one was actually on Sori.

  • Do not make him angry: Tanner Roark (+34.3%) sees his brilliant outing wasted, going 7.2 IP with 1 ER, 5 Ks and no walks.  He will have terrible vengeance, oh yes.
  • Replacement rally: Danny Espinosa (+9.1%) blasts a 3rd-inning solo shot to put the Nats on the board and in the lead (+12.7%). Kevin Frandsen (+12.0%) follows up a few batters later with a two-run double (+16.7%).
  • Closing? UR DOIN IT RONG: Rafael Soriano (-42.1%) gives up 3 hits and 2 ER before recording his first out in the 9th, sending the game to extras and earning a meltdown.
  • Almost, but not quite right: Drew Storen (-37.4%) gets two outs in the 10th before giving up the losing RBI double (-44.1%) to earn his own meltdown.
