The Nats’ win probability chart from Game 5

Placeholder while article actions load

This is about the cruelest graphic The Post Sports section has produced in my memory (click to expand).

It shows the Nats’ win expectancy percentage throughout Game 5 on Friday, according to FanGraphs. When there were two outs in the ninth and a runner on third, the percentage was 96.5, meaning the Nats would win 96.5 percent of such games. After two walks and two singles, the percentage had dipped to 7.4.
