You Have To Believe!!!!

Down 6-0 after two innings, the Washington Nationals rallied all the way back with Elijah Dukes' solo HR in the seventh tying it at 8-8, and Ronnie Belliard's RBI single putting DC ahead in a 4-run eighth that ended with DC up by a score of 12-8. Ryan Zimmerman goes 4 for 4 with a triple a HR and 3 RBI's, Elijah Dukes goes 3 for 4 with a HR and 4 RBI's!!! The Nationals bullpen of Ron Villone, Jason Bergmann, Tyler Clippard, Sean Burnett and Jorge Sosa combine to hold Florida off the board after the fifth. The Washington Nationals win their fifth straight, and SWEEEEEP the Marlins out of Nationals Park, after going 0-9 in '09 against the Marlins before this series. 

Heroes of the Game? Elijah Dukes for his game-tying HR, and Jason Bergmann, who enters the game with the bases loaded and 1 down in the sixth and pops up Hanley Ramirez and Jorge Cantu to keep DC in the game. 

Nationals win, 12-8 final.
