Game 124 WPA: Off the foot. Nats win 8-3.

New, comments

Strasburg pitched pretty darned niftily, Harper may have epically deked the umps, and the kids call him Zim.

You look like a man who just got away with something.

  • Mid-season form: Stephen Strasburg (+10.0%) gives up 2 runs in 6 IP with 7 Ks and a walk.
  • Also, maybe, mid-season form (finally): Wilson Ramos (+20.3%) lasers a two-run dinger into the LF corner to tie the game with two outs in the second (+22.0%).
  • [Rizzo points to head]: Yunel Escobar (+15.9%) is 2-3 with a pair of walks and a two-out, RBI double to put the Nats ahead in the third (+14.2%).
  • Two-out rallies are a thing tonight: Ian Desmond (+3.5%) hits a two-out, RBI double for the winning tally in the fifth (+10.8%).
  • Are they ever a thing: Ryan Zimmerman (+6.5%) takes advantage of a possible umpire error in your favor, collect 4 RBIs, when he smashes a grand slam over the out of town scoreboard with two down in the fifth to pad his stats in dramatic fashion (+11.6%).
