June 29, 2008 – Down 2-1 with two outs and two strikes in the bottom of the 12th, INF Ronnie Belliard hit a walk-off, two-run shot off George Sherrill to secure a 3-2 win vs. Baltimore. Belliard became just the second Washington National to erase a deficit with a walk-off home run while down to the last strike. He was also the first DC-based big leaguer to hit a walk-off homer in the 12th inning or later since June 28, 1970, when Senators pinch-hitter Rick Reichardt hit a two-run home run off Baltimore’s Eddie Watt at RFK.
