Today in Nationals’ History: Ryan Zimmerman hits another walk-off home run & Nationals acquire Tanner Roark
July 31, 2010 – INF Ryan Zimmerman’s seventh career game-winning home run — the most in MLB since his 9/1/05 big league debut — came at Brad Lidge’s expense and lifted the Nationals past the Phillies, 7-5. His 3-run shot was also the 12th time in Zimmerman’s young career that he sent the Nationals home with a win with a game-ending “event” (hit, sac fly, walk, etc.). LHP Ross Detwiler left in line for the win after allowing just one run in 5.1 innings and striking out three.

Denard Span and Ross Detwiler did their part here in D.C., visiting with scholar-athletes from the Nationals Youth Baseball Academy, joining the Washington Redskins at the Darrell Green Foundation’s annual Christmas party and partnering with the Hope for Henry Foundation on a Winter Wonderland Holiday party for pediatric patients at The Lombardi Cancer Center at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital.
