It seems like the Washington Nationals have been playing with magic wands the past few days. The Nats won their third straight game via a walk-off hit Monday night and their seventh consecutive game overall. Adam LaRoche blasted an 11th inning home run — a no-doubt type of homer — to give the Nats a 5-4 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. After the game, LaRoche told reporters, including Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post : “I got every bit of that one,” LaRoche said. “Just a crazy few days. I don’t know how we’ve gotten into these walk-off situations the last few days, but we’ve been able to grind back.” LaRoche’s homer was the most dramatic of the walk-off trifecta, but the other two were just as effective. The Nats won on an 11th-inning sac fly on Sunday and a ninth-inning ground-rule double Saturday. Both of those came against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
