Ross pitched pretty well, but Ol' Man Werth set us up the bomb.

(What do these graphs mean?)

  • [Charlie-and-Dave-esque riff rhyming with "Ross" here]: Joe Ross (+17.2%) is allowed to gracefully exit after throwing six innings of one run ball with 4 Ks and 2 walks
  • I hear he's been working on his defense: Daniel Murphy (+13.1%) singles in a run with two down in the first to get the Nats on the board (+11.9%).
  • Bandbox power: Jayson Werth (+21.9%) lines one over the left field wall for a two-out, three-run homer to add to the lead in the first (+21.5%).
  • Equanimity: Anthony Rendon (+0.0%) is 2-4 with a walk, 2 LOB, and no net WPA.
  • How's Revere doing? Michael Taylor (-5.8%) is 0-5 with 2 Ks and 2 LOB.

Tonight's WPA brought to you by series win!
