Game 159 WPA: Strong Stras. Nats win, try to convince me that the rest of the season didn't happen, but where is everybody?

Stras has a good outing, Clint goes yard, and the Nats show some good defense.

Stras is good at the baseball.

(What do these graphs mean?)

  • Leaving us with some hope: Stephen Strasburg (+35.6%) throws 6 scoreless with 7 Ks and a walk.
  • Another pleasant surprise: Clint Robinson (+8.5%) continues to show value, hitting a second-inning solo shot for the winning run (+12.7%).
  • Interesting: Blake Treinen (+9.6%) puts on two runners in the 7th but gets out of the inning without allowing a run to earn a shutdown.
  • Tacking on: Trea Turner (+6.6%) uses his speed to perhaps force an error to drive in a run in the ayeth (+11.4%).
  • Off night: Anthony Rendon (-9.2%) and Michael Taylor (-8.9%) combine to go 0-8 with 4 Ks and 3 LOB.
  • Durable: Felipe Rivero (+6.5%) works for his shutdown, pitching two scoreless to finish the game with 2 Ks and no walks.
