In Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Phillies, Jayson Werth hit a walk-off single that carried the Washington Nationals to a 5-4 win.

So we thought it was a good time to take a stroll down memory lane, and look at some of the top walk-offs in Nationals history.

Now, most of the videos may feature Ryan Zimmerman, so I will try my best to spread the glory. Not to mention that there are so many walk offs to choose from.

Back when the Nationals played baseball at RFK Stadium, Zimmerman hit a walk-off home run in a game against the New York Yankees on Father's Day. It was a great way to send the dads home happy.

In 2007, Zimmerman came through in the clutch again when he belted a walk off grand slam to beat the Florida Marlins 7-3.

There is no better way to debut a new ballpark than hitting a walk-off home run. That's what Ryan Zimmerman did.

In the first game in Nationals Park, Zimmerman hit a walk-off home run that lifted the Nationals over the Atlanta Braves 3-2 on Mar. 30, 2008.

Then there was the time catcher Wilson Ramos led the Nationals to a 4-3 win when he hit a walk off single in the 11th inning to beat the Phillies.

Bryce Harper hit his first walk off when he hit an RBI single in the 12th inning of the Nationals' 7-6 win over the New York Mets.

One of the greatest moments in Washington Nationals history. It was Game 3 of the 2012 NLDS against the St. Louis Cardinals and the Nationals were down 2-1 in the series. Werth saved his team's season by belting a walk-off home run into the opponent's bullpen.

Bryce Harper blasted a two-run home run that led the Nationals to a 9-7 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 27, 2013. It was the first walk-off home run in Harper's career.

Former National Yunel Escobar knocked a solo shot in the bottom of the 10th to beat the St. Louis Cardinals, 2-1.

This should be considered a special moment since it came on a night when the Washington Wizards and Capitals won as well. It was a great time to be a DC sports Fan.

Last season, the Z-Man struck the Yankees once again when he launched a walk-off home run that led to an 8-6 win in extra innings. In this game, the Yankees were up 6-3.

On Apr. 23, 2016, Chris Heisey hit a walk-off home run in the Nationals' victory over the Minnesota Twins. It was the longest regular season game in the team's history as it went 16 innings.
