WASHINGTON (AP) - Pinch-hitter Wilson Ramos delivered an RBI single with two outs in the bottom of the 11th inning Friday night to give the Washington Nationals a 4-3 comeback victory over the Philadelphia Phillies.
Steve Lombardozzi started the winning rally against Michael Schwimer (0-1) by singling with two outs, and 19-year-old Bryce Harper - the youngest player in the majors - drew his third walk of the game before Jayson Werth walked, too, loading the bases.
That brought up Ramos, who hit a 1-2 pitch to bring home Lombardozzi and set off a celebration, with his teammates streaming out of the dugout to greet him at first base.
Ryan Perry (1-0), Washington's sixth pitcher, earned the win.
