(AP Photo/David Kohl. Ham Sandwich: Josh Willingham collides with Reds' catcher Ryan Hanigan but scores the winning run in the 8th on a heads-up scamper home, following Ryan Zimmerman's pinch hit, 2 run single - and Drew Sutton's brain fart lob.)
"It was just spur-of-the-moment. I just took off. When he lobbed the ball, I said, 'I'm going to take a chance,' and it worked out."

Nats 5, Reds 4: Lannan stunk out the joint in the 5th, but Interim Jim's Comeback Kids picked him up late at the House That Jim Bowden Built.
It's the Josh Willingham Show: 3-4, HR, 3 RBI, and the aforementioned game winning dash home.
Tip of the cap to the Nats bullpen. But mostly Mike MacDougal.
What the F? Wil Nieves, 3-4. Who!? Yeah, you know.
Off day Monday. Might be tough finding anything to talk about without a game to watch...
