The Nationals have won six straight games, and once again, they homered their way to victory - in especially dramatic fashion.
For the second straight night, the team hit four homers. The final one of those, from Danny Espinosa, was a three-run walk-off shot in the 10th inning to give them a 7-4 victory and a series sweep of the Cardinals.
The shot came after Ryan Zimmerman singled to start the 10th and Michael Morse got hit by a pitch. It was Espinosa’s first-ever walk-off, and earned him a Gatorade shower from Roger Bernadina and Ian Desmond after the game.
The Nationals are now 33-36. They’ll try to make it seven in a row tomorrow against the Orioles.
More in a little bit.
