Game 10 WPA: Hey, Murphy! It’s your bobble-day! Washington Nationals walk off Philadelphia Phillies 3-2 in 10th inning to win opening game of weekend series.

Stras pitched well, the bullpen was nails, Tony 2-Bags returned, and Murph had the big hit.

(What do these graphs mean?)

  • OMG that zone was terrible: Stephen Strasburg (+13.1%) “walks” 2 and fans 8 over 7 IP, giving up 2 runs.
  • I was against this signing, too: Matt Weiters (-6.4%) singles in a run to tie it with one down in the 2nd (+10.5%).
  • The return of Tony Two-Bags: Anthony Rendon (+15.9%) doubles in a run to tie the game again with two down in the 7th (+23.6%).
  • Relief corps d’elite: Koda Glover (+10.7%), Blake Treinen (+13.9%) and Shawn Kelley (+13.9%) combine to throw scoreless aeyth, 9th, and 10th innings, respectively, each earning a shutdown.
  • Bobble-worthy: Daniel Murphy (+17.7%) doubles in the winning run in the 10th for the walkoff (+28.8%).
