Now walk it off

"Wilson Ramos #3 of the Washington Nationals celebrates after hitting a three-run walk-off home run against the Seattle Mariners during the bottom of the ninth inning at Nationals Park on June 21, 2011 in Washington, DC. Washington Nationals won, 6-5."

This is the epitome of sports - come from behind, last minute victory.

The game last night between the Washington Nationals and the Seattle Mariners was a complete snoozefest. I continually looked at the back of camera throughout the game wondering what the hell would tell the story.

Then the Nationals entered the ninth inning trailing by four runs. Seemed impossible. One out. Two outs. The game was over.

But having played sports, you never give up. Sometimes things change, all it takes is one play. For being out hit at one point, 13-4, you still thought things were impossible for the Nationals.

But all it took was a crack of the bat an instant roar from the crowd. Three-run walk-off home run bomb to win it. Walk it off it style and then get smothered by teammates at home plate, Ramos.

Incredible ending to the game. Got to love sports.
