Game 127 WPA: Maximum Max. Nats win 4-0.

It's a one-man show tonight, as Max mows 'em down with a slight assist from Werth and some late-inning junk-timing to pad the lead.

Decent outing.

  • Old dudes gotta stick together: Jayson Werth (+9.0%) leads off the 4th with a long solo home run off the wall of the service corridor in straightaway center, giving Max all the runs he'd need (+13.2%).
