Game 119 WPA: Can't they play small ball? Nats 4, Mets 1

New, 21 comments

A walk and a dinger is a good way to score runs, so the Nats do it twice. Strasburg has another disastrous road outing pitches well and the bullpen is nails.

He missed a chance to bunt Desmond over.

  • New routine: Stephen Strasburg (+24.7%) gives up 1 unearned run in 7 IP with 8 Ks and 2 walks. Work on the command, scrub!
  • Jump out early: Adam LaRoche (+20.9%) drives in the eventual winning runs with a two-run dinger in the first (+21.2%).
  • Follow the leader: Bryce Harper (+8.7%) hits a two-run bomb of his own in the 4th (+11.9%).
