MR. WALKOFF! Ryan Zimmerman hits another walkoff homer to beat Marlins

Zimmerman’s Walk-Off Home Run Lifts NationalsThe Post
Walk-off shot lifts NationalsThe Wash. Times
Ever since I assigned Ryan Zimmerman the nickname of Mr. Walkoff seconds after he beat the Atlanta Braves on Nationals Park Opening Night in 2008, he had not won a game with a walkoff home run. That streak, along with the Washington’s recent 8 game skid, is thankfully over. For the fifth time in his first four full seasons, Zimmerman ended a game with a home run. This was the third such occurrence against the Florida Marlins.

I’ve been at two of Mr. Walkoff’s game winners which is only 40% of them now. Most have been on special days — July 4, Father’s Day, Opening Night and now the day before Labor Day. I guess since the Nats are not playing today for some reason, he moved it to yesterday.
