Game 127 WPA: Underperforming. Nats lose 3-4

New, comments

(What do these graphs mean?)

  • Regressing the heck out of his HR/9: Max Scherzer (-18.1%) gives up an insurmountable 4 runs in 7 IP with 8 Ks and no walks, but two dingers allowed.
  • Coming up big(ish): Ian Desmond (+12.5%) is 2-4 with a temporarily-game-tying solo shot in the 2nd (+12.1%) and a single to lead off the 9th with the Nats behind by one (+13.2%).
  • Padding stats, but not being clutch (if that existed): Wilson Ramos (-18.6%) hits a solo shot to get the Nats within 2 in the 5th (+9.0%), but grounds out to strand the bases loaded in the 6th (-13.0%) and struck out with a RISP in the 9th (-13.0%).
  • Making the least of an opportunity: Clint Robinson flies out to end the game with a runner in scoring position (-13.3%).
