- Also running out of gas: Max Scherzer (-32.5%) gives up 5 runs in 6 IP with 6 Ks and no walks, but 3 HRs allowed.
- Horns up! Wilson Ramos (+13.6%) electrifies the crowed with a dramatic, go-ahead grand slam in the 4th (+30.0%).
ArrooooOOO! Jayson Werth (+5.7%) doubles in a run later in the 4th to double the Nats' lead to "not enough" (+10.0%).
- Not a meltdown: Blake Treinen (-0.4%) is the 2nd-most-effective Nats reliever today, getting an out in the 7th but allowing a runner.
- Still not a metldown (just barely): Felipe Rivero (-5.9%) walks a batter and records no outs after Treinen, missed a meltdown by 0.1%.
- Definitely meltdowns: Casey Janssen (-22.3%) lets in an inherited runners to put the Nats behind, while Matt Thornton (-10.8%) lets in two more to put the game out of reach.
- Today's WPA leader: Ian Desmond (+18.2%) is 2-3 with a walk.
- I'm blame him, too, if he pitched today: Bryce Harper (-9.5%) is 0-4 with a walk, 3 Ks and 3 LOB.
Tonight's WPA brought to you by promises:
