Fangraphs Win Expectancy Graph

The Brewers offense just wasn't on their game today. The team accumulated just six hits and one walk against Jordan Zimmermann and a trio of Nationals relievers. There's not a lot of shame in that. Zimmermann is a great pitcher who has been devastating recently and the Nationals' bullpen is one of the best in the league. Still, it doesn't make for a very fun game when you're offense is that futile.

The team managed just one run. That came in the fourth inning when Rickie Weeks singled in Aramis Ramirez, who had previously doubled. Unfortunately, that came after the Nationals had already put a three-spot on Randy Wolf in the top half of the inning, including a two run home run by Tyler Moore. The third run in that frame came on a Corey Brown homer, the first hit of his career. The Nationals put another run on the board the next inning on a Ryan Zimmerman home run.

Randy Wolf was about as good as you could reasonably expect Randy Wolf to be. He went seven innings and allowed nine hits, with all four runs being given up via the long ball. He also struck out six and walked one. Jim Henderson and Kameron Loe each pitched an inning and gave up a hit apiece. Henderson also struck out two.

Rickie Weeks, who singled, doubled and was hit by a pitch, was the only Brewer hitter to reach base multiple times.

The two teams will go at it once more as Mark Rogers makes his first major league appearance in almost two years. He has a tough test: The Nationals have Cy Young contender Gio Gonzalez starting tomorrow. First pitch is scheduled for 1:10.
