Game 39 WPA: Stranded on third. Nats 1, AZ 3

Stras gave 'em a chance to win, but there were few enough runners and fewer still that came in to score, no matter how far around the bases.

  • How much of a chance do you need? Stephen Strasburg (-11.0%) gives up only 3 ER in 7 IP with 6 Ks and no walks, but a quality start isn't enough.
  • Settling in? Ian Desmond (+9.7%) gets the Nats on the board and in the lead with a second inning RBI triple (+16.1%).
  • Hero/goat: Kevin Frandsen (-5.2%) GDPs to strand Des at 3rd in the 2nd (-10.7%), but gets a bunt-hit+error to put runners corners in the fifth (+9.0%)
  • Least helpful: Danny Espinosa (-10.3%) and Denard Span (-16.3%) combine to go 0-8 with 4 LOB.
