Game 42 WPA: UH-OH, GI-O! Nats 2, Mets 5

Sure, the Nats couldn't score enough off a fading veteran pitcher, but their "ace" didn't get it done in a big way. Again. It may be time to panic.

  • Not good at all: Gio Gonzalez (-32.3%) allows 5 ER in only 3 IP on 7 H, 4 K and 2 BB.
  • Heating up? Ian Desmond (+8.1%) is 2-4 with a two-run homer.
  • Bright spot: Craig Stammen (+7.2%) chews up 4 scoreless innings with 2 Ks and a walk to earn a shutdown in this stinker.
  • Unhelpful at the top: Denard Span (-9.1%) and Anthony Rendon (-6.6%) combine to go 0-8 with 4 LOB.
  • Powerless: Wilson Ramos (-9.6%) and Tyler Moore (-10.9%) are a combined 0-7 with 3 LOB and a GDP in the middle of the order.
