  • He settled in nicely: Tanner Roark (+6.7%) struggles with his command early, issuing 2 walks and 2 HBP, but recovers to fan 6 and allow 2 runs in 6 IP.
  • Three true outcomes: Ryan Zimmerman (+11.8%) is 1-3 with a walk, a K, and a second-inning solo bomb just over the out-of-town scoreboard to get the Nats on the board (+10.2%).
  • WPA liked him the best tonight: Bryce Harper (+16.6%) is 2-4 with a game-tying RBI double in the 4th (+15.9%).
  • Where’s the power, Mr. Singles Machine? Daniel Murphy (+8.1%) singles in the go-ahead run a bit later in the 4th (+11.1%)
  • I was against this signing: Matt Wieters (+15.9%) is 3-3 with a double and a two-run, bases-loaded single for the eventual winning tallies (+10.5%).
