New, 7 comments

Gio struggled, but limited the damage. The RISP fail was pretty painful, but when isn't it?

First place, baby!

  • Tough: Gio Gonzalez (-11.1%) struggles to find the zone, but only gives up 2 runs in 4.2 IP with 8 Ks, despite 6 hits and 4 BBs.
  • Mr. Werth will tell you when it's a strike: Jayson Werth (+8.8%) leads the team in WPA with 0-1, 3 walk night.
  • Wasted: Craig Stammen earns a shutdown with four outs in relief, but the team doesn't get him a win, the jerks.
  • Streaker: Denard Span (+5.8%) is 2-4 with a pair of doubles.
  • Stat-padder: Ian Desmond (+2.6%) gets a step closer to 20-20 with a 4th-inning solo shot for a brief Nats lead (+14.1%).
