- Rough night, kid: Joe Ross (-22.1%) does the best he can, but gives up 4 runs in 4 IP despite fanning 6 and only walking one.
- Tonight's WPA leader: Blake Treinen (+3.4%) doesn't have enough leverage to earn a shutdown with his 2 scoreless in relief with 2 Ks and no walks, but he leads the team in WPA today anyhow.
- Tonight's hitting WPA leader: Ian Desmond (+2.2%) is 1-3 with a SB, leading the Nats' offense, such as it is.
- Exercises in shiny, wide-brimmed hats: Michael Taylor (-6.9%) is 0-4 with 4 Ks.
- More offensive offense: Wilson Ramos (-6.1%) is 1-3 with 2 LOB. Bryce Harper (-4.3%) is 0-4 with 3 Ks and 1 LOB. Yunel Escobar (-4.3%) is 0-4 with 1 LOB.
Tonight's WPA brought to you by did I ever tell you guys about that time I saw Nirvana open for Dinosaur Jr at the Whiskey back in the day?
