Mariner Meltdown: Nats Score 5 Runs on Last Out for Win

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Wilson Ramos capped Washington's five-run ninth inning with a game-ending three-run homer, lifting the Nationals to a dramatic 6-5 victory over the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday night.

Jerry Hairston and Danny Espinosa each had two-out RBI singles before Ramos connected on a 1-1 pitch from David Pauley, hitting a drive deep to center for his sixth homer. Ramos threw his arms up almost immediately after the ball left his bat as Pauley (4-1) started to trudge off the mound.

The Mariners wasted a fine effort from Doug Fister, who allowed one run and three hits in eight innings.
