Heading into the ninth inning of Tuesday's game against the Mariners, the Nationals looked left for dead. They'd collected just three hits and one run off Seattle starter Doug Fister, and the Mariners had dinged Livan Hernandez for 10 hits.
They were trailing 5-1, and it looked like they were headed toward their second straight loss.
But then Jayson Werth got on base with an error, and after Ryan Zimmerman's third double play of the night, the Nationals got two more hits. They put Wilson Ramos at the plate as the game-winning run. And Ramos delivered.
He launched a three-run homer off David Pauley, giving the Nationals an improbable 6-5 win over the Mariners. Quite simply, it's the kind of game they wouldn't have won earlier this year.
More from the clubhouse in a little bit.
