After my lament last time about a rather dull game, the next one was quite the exciting ding-dong battle. Jayson Werth's Grand Slam appearance tops both the Leverage and Value chart. But the numbers also show that this game belonged to the batters. The fact that my two favourite Nationals' pitchers, Jordan Zimmermann and Tyler Clippard, earned rather poor ratings, pains me.

NB: I am sorry to slip so far behind. My mother is currently in a nursing home while she undergoes some treatments, and I am keeping her company. So my routines are badly disrupted as I have to deal with long-distance parenting, work and close-up visitations of the sick. So far I have been able to follow, on average, every other game, but posting to the blog remains problematic.
