Game 65 WPA: A decent series, overall. Nats 1, SF 7

The Nats couldn't catch a break today, but they still won 3 of 4.

Not so ace-y.

Via Fangraphs (click to embiggen) (Yes, I know the graph is missing a run. It doesn't make too much difference in this game.)

  • Ah, only four aces: Blake Treinen (-3.6%) struggles through 5 innings, giving up 2 ER with 3 walks and 2 strikeouts.
  • Meltdown: Craig Stammen (-8.5%) doesn't do well in his inning of relief, giving up 2 ER--including one on a balk.
  • Ralliers: Ryan Zimmerman (+1.0%) singles in a run with two down in the 4th to put the Nats on the board (+10.2%). Jose Lobaton (+15.7%) singles to put runners corners in the 5th with the Nats down by one (+14.3%).
  • Unhelpful: Denard Span (-23.1%) is 0-4 with 2 LOB and a rally-destroying GDP in the 5th (-17.2%).
