Game 156 WPA: Another den Dekker triumph! Nats win, MdD solidifies his spot on the roster for 2016.

New, comments

Matt den Dekker has another good night at the plate, including two doubles and a dinger. I think Max pitched okay, too.

First among equals!

(What do these graphs mean?)

  • Eh, I've seen better: Max Scherzer (+32.9% pitching, +5.6% hitting) gives up 1 run in 8 IP with 10 Ks and 3 walks. Work on the control, dude! He's 2-3 at the plate.
  • I could see him as a 4th OFer next year: Matt den Dekker (+10.7%) is 3-4 with a double, an RBI double to get the Nats on the board in the 4th (+10.3%), and a solo bomb to pad his stats some more in the 6th (+3.6%).
  • Also contributing: Michael Taylor (+5.5%) hits a two-out RBI single to put the Nats up by two for the eventual winning run (+11.2%).
  • Also junk-timing: Wilson Ramos (+1.5%) hits a two-out solo shot in the 5th to pad his stats, too (+7.9%).
