(What do these graphs mean?)

  • Only 10? Booo! Stephen Strasburg (+11.9%) fans 10, walks 1, and allows 2 runs (1 earned) in 7 IP.
  • Bearded fearsomeness, or possibly fearsome beardedness: Jayson Werth (+13.1%) doubles in a pair of run to put the Nats up early in the first (+20.0%).
  • Remember me from yesterday? Tyler Moore (+9.2%) cranks a three-run bomb into the visiting bullpen to put the game away with two outs in the 6th (+11.8%).
  • Stat-padders gotta stat-pad: Yunel Escobar (+6.1%) is 4-4 with a walk and a superfluous 3-RBI double with two down in the 6th (+1.6%). Bryce Harper (+11.2%) is 3-4 with a double and a walk.

Tonight's WPA brought to you by never giving up and never surrendering:
