Well, it was a few good innings to start.

(What do these graphs mean?)

  • Not quite quality: Doug Fister (-21.8%) gives up 4 runs over 6 IP with 4 Ks and 2 walks, the big damage coming on consecutive 4th-inning HRs.
  • Patient: Denard Span (+9.6%) is 1-2 with a pair of walks and a two-out single in the 7th for the Nats' sole RBI (+4.2%).
  • Rally killers: Yunel Escobar (-20.2%) is 0-4 with 3 LOB and a runners-corners GDP to end a third-inning rally (-13.6%). Wilson Ramos (-12.9%) is also 0-4 with 3 LOB and a GDP.
  • Solid but unheralded: Felipe Rivero (+1.2%) throws two perfect innings in relief with a pair of Ks, but WPA is long past caring at that point.
