Zimmerman Walk-off Sinks Phils

Washington, DC (Sports Network) – Ryan Zimmerman’s three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth led the Washington Nationals to a 7-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies in the second of a three-game set.

After the Phillies took a one-run lead on Carlos Ruiz’s RBI single in the ninth, the Phils turned to Brad Lidge (1-1) to close the game, but it was not to be.

Mike Morse led off with a single and moved to second on Nyjer Morgan’s sac bunt. Adam Kennedy followed with a walk and Zimmerman then crushed a fastball over the middle of the plate over the center-field wall for the win.
