Throwback Thursday: A sendoff for a homegrown kid

Earlier this week, the Nationals acquired right-hander Doug Fister from the Tigers in exchange for infielder Steve Lombardozzi, and left-handers Ian Krol and Robbie Ray.

Despite the excitement surrounding Fister joining the Nats rotation, many D.C. fans were sad to see Lombardozzi go. The kid from Atholton High School always seemed to be a fan favorite around Nats Park.

In honor of his time with the Nationals, we’re throwin’ it back to one of Lombo’s memorable moments. In this highlight from September, Lombardozzi teamed up with Jordan Zimmermann to end a rally late in a tie ballgame.
