New, comments

Max had a solid outing and the bullpen wobbled slightly but held a tie long enough to Drew to come through with the walkoff.

(What do these graphs mean?)

  • Meh. I've seen better: Max Scherzer (+17.2%) gives up 2 runs over 7 IP with 10 Ks and no walks.
  • Not the hitter we we've come to expect: Ben Revere (+9.3%) yanks a game-tying RBI double into the RF corner with one down in the 5th (+11.3%).
  • I was never worried: Shawn Kelley (+10.4%) works around a two-out triple to keep the game tied in the ayeth and earn a shutdown.
  • I've got a hole in me lineup: Bryce Harper (-15.0%) is 0-4 with 4 LOB.
  • I was maybe a little worried: Jonathan Papelbon (+13.2%) works around a leadoff double to keep it tied in the ninth and earn a shutdown.
  • See what four days of diarrhea can do? Stephen Drew (+36.9%) is the man with the runs, bashing a pinch-hit, RBI triple into the RF corner for the walkoff with one down in the 9th.
