This Day in Washington Nationals History – Zimmerman’s Eighth Walk-Off Home Run

August 19

2006Alfonso Soriano hit his career-high 40th home run and became the 10th player in major league history with at least 40 homers and at least 30 steals in a season. Soriano is the eighth player in history to hit 40 or more homers in his first season after switching leagues joining Frank Robinson, Jim Thome, Davey Johnson, Dick Stuart, Jim Edmonds, Jeff Burroughs and Ken Griffey Jr.

2008 – Philadelphia Phillies (67-58) outscored the Washington Nationals (44-82) 5-4 and handed the Nationals’ their 11th straight loss.

2011 -For the eighth time in his seven-year major league career, the Washington Nationals (60-63) third baseman Ryan Zimmerman ended the game with a home run. This time, it was a grand slam, hit with a full count and two outs in the bottom of the ninth against the Phillies.

Zimmerman’s drive over the left field wall against Ryan Madson capped a six-run ninth, giving the Nationals an 8-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies (80-43).
