Game 55 WPA: Stopped at series win. Nats 0, TEX 2

Roark pitched what should have been a gem, and the Nats even won two appeals at the same time. Too bad about the hitting.

You have failed Roark, Nats.

  • What's a guy have to do? Tanner Roark (+18.3%) gives up 1 ER in 7 IP, using 4 Ks to work around 7 hits and 2 BBs. Not enough.
  • Sparkplug: Denard Span (+3.7%) is 2-4 with a double and a SB.
  • The big WPA: Adam LaRoche (+7.4%) singles to put runners corners with one out in the 6th in a scoreless tie (+10.4%).
  • The big WPA (negative): Wilson Ramos (-16.4%) fans right after ALR puts runners 1st/3rd (-10.4%). Ian Desmond (-15.7%) is 0-4 with 3 LOB. Anthony Rendon (-11.5%) is 0-4 with 2 LOB.
  • Meltdown: Drew Storen (-11.4%) gives up a run in the aeyth, putting the game well out of reach.
