"I think a walk-off is like the best thing in sports, personally. One at-bat. One memory. One win. So many emotions going through you. It was surreal, it was awesome."

Nationals 7, Mets 4: Last one out, turn off the lights. Justin Maxwell closes out the Nationals Park portion of the season in style with a walk-off grand slam against K-Rod.
Considering the overwhelming number of home-cooked stinkers at Nationals Park in 2009, this one was a little unexpected.
Nats complete series sweep against Mets. Wow, the Mets really are pathetic, aren't they?
Before the game, Mike Rizzo calls Jim Riggleman a "legitimate candidate" for the full time job as Nats manager.
