The Washington Nationals were down to their last out and last strike before Daniel Murphy hit a game-tying, pinch hit homer to tie it up at 1-1 in the ninth. It went to 18 innings in D.C. before Pittsburgh Pirates' outfielder Starling Marte hit a game-winning home run. The Nationals ended up taking two of three from the visiting Pirates, and they finished the series 56-37 after their five-game winning streak was snapped in the series finale with the Bucs.
