Washington Nationals Beat Toronto Blue Jays On Adam Dunn's Walk-Off Winner.

After waiting five and a half rain-soaked hours for last night's game with New York to start, the Washington Nationals and their fans were forced to wait for four hours and eleven innings before tonight's game at Nationals Park against the visiting Toronto Blue Jays  ended on Adam Dunn's bases-loaded line drive to right. Dunn's 48th RBI broke a 1-1 tie and gave the Nationals three straight wins for only the second time this season. DC's rookie righty Jordan Zimmermann allowed one run on 5 hits in 5.2 IP and knocked in the Nationals' only run before Dunn's walk-off winner, grounding into what would have been a double play in the fourth if the pitcher hadn't been hustling to turn a DP grounder into a force at second and Zimmermann's first MLB RBI...

The Nationals had a chance to break the game wide open in the seventh when Cristian Guzman's leadoff single and Nick Johnson's NJ™ trademark double put runners on second and third with no one out and the game tied at 1-1. Toronto's righty reliever Dirk Hayhurst got Ryan Zimmerman looking at a 3-2 slider before issuing the intentionals to Adam Dunn and then passing the ball to Blue Jays' right-hander Shawn Camp, who continued the trend with back to back swinging K's from Elijah Dukes and Josh Bard to strand Guzman and Johnson and keep it knotted up at one. 

The DC Bullpen combines for 5.1 scoreless after Jordan Zimmermann's 5.2 IP. Kip Wells, Julian Tavarez, Ron Villone, Joel Hanrahan, Joe Beimol and Jesus Colome get the Natiionals through the Jays' eleventh and Colome gets the win when Adam Dunn's RBI single walk-off single finally ends it. 

Nationals win, 2-1 final.
