Game 141 WPA: Nats are terrible, lose, look to establish multi-level marketing scheme in coming months*

Roark was okay, I guess, but does anyone hit on this team anymore?

(What do these graphs mean?)

  • Not terrible: Tanner Roark (+6.0%) lets in one run over 4.2 IP and has an inherited runner score while fanning two and walking one. Not enough for a team win, though.
  • You had one job: Sammy Solis (-8.4%) melts down in the 5th, letting in an inherited runner before getting the third out.
  • Hitting McHitterson: Anthony Rendon (+7.5%) is 2-4 with double ("triple") to lead off the 9th (+10.4%).
  • Flailing McFlailerson: Danny Espinosa (-16.8%) is 0-4 with 2 Ks and 3 LOB, including a K with no outs and a runner on 3rd in the 9th (-8.1%).
  • Also ineffective and rage-inducing: Ian Desmond (-12.3%) is 0-3 with a K and 3 LOB.

*The Nats are not, to my knowledge, looking to establish a multi-level marketing scheme.
