Nationals Werthquake Print
The Nationals were pushed to the brink early on in the 2012 playoffs, despite having the league’s best record. Down two games to one to St. Louis in the best-of-five NLDS, Washington was playing a must-win game at home. The game was a pitcher’s duel, with the score knotted at one and just five total hits between the two teams entering the bottom of the ninth inning. Jayson Werth led off the frame for the Nats and an epic battle ensued between he and the Cardinals’ Lance Lynn. On the 13th and final pitch of the at bat, Werth sent his team home winners.
“The Werthquake” was the first postseason walk-off homer in Nationals/Expos franchise history. The game-winning shot gave the Nats the first home postseason win for a Washington baseball team in nearly 80 seasons. It was only the third time a player hit a playoff walk-off home run against the Cardinals in over 200 games.
