Nationals Top 10 Hits of 2012: #7 Jayson Werth

There were a lot of big hits this year for the Washington Nationals and there were a lot of big wins. This list is sorted by WPA which is Win Probability Added. It means that Jayson Werth‘s walk-off homerun in Game Four of the NLDS is not in the Top 10 because it was a tie game in the bottom of the inning meaning the swing of WPA was not big enough. This list is for games where Washington went from a low chance of winning to a high chance.

Next up is Number 7.

Jayson Werth: September 8 vs Miami

The situation: 6-5 Miami, Bottom 9, Bases Empty
Pitcher: Heath Bell

The result: +0.44

This was the game that had the long rain delay that was referenced by Charlie Slowes a good thirty seconds before Werth ended Game 4 of the NLDS. This one didn’t end the game, but it tied it up for Corey Brown to hit a walk-off single in the 10th inning.
