WASHINGTON (AP) – Ivan Rodriguez capped a three-run comeback in the ninth inning with an RBI single and the Washington Nationals, who couldn’t score for Stephen Strasburg, rallied against Francisco Rodriguez to beat the New York Mets 6-5 Saturday.
Trying to protect a 5-3 lead, Francisco Rodriguez (2-2) opened the ninth by walking Cristian Guzman. Willie Harris’ one-out single and a walk to Ryan Zimmerman loaded the bases.
Adam Dunn nearly hit a game-winning grand slam, but his drive to center just beyond the reach of Angel Pagan hit the top of the center-field wall and caromed back onto the field.
Guzman retreated to third base to tag up and nearly collided with Harris, who was running full speed and had to do a neat shuffle-step to barely avoid running into – or passing – his teammate.
