Nationals Vs. Dodgers: Rafael Furcal Walk-Off Gives Los Angeles A 7-6 Win

Rafael Furcal hit a double in the bottom of the ninth inning to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 7-6 win over the Washington Nationals at Dodgers Stadium on Saturday night. With runners on first and second base with one out in a tie ballgame in the bottom of the sixth inning, Furcal lined a shot over Laynce Nix's head in center field to give the Dodgers the win.

It was a particularly tough loss for Washington because it looked like they would cruise back to .500. The Nationals took a 3-0 lead after their first at-bat after doubles by Michael Morse and Jayson Werth, then tacked on three more runs in the top of the third to push the lead to 6-2. But starter Tom Gorzelanny didn't have it going and promptly gave up three runs in the bottom of the third inning. Los Angeles tied it in the bottom of the seventh on a Henry Rodriguez wild pitch and then won it off Ryan Mattheus in the bottom of the ninth.

Nationals Vs. Dodgers: Tom Gorzelanny Looks To Put Washington Back At .500

The Washington Nationals will look to get back to .500 when they take on the Los Angeles Dodgers in the second game of a three-game series from Dodgers Stadium on Saturday night. First pitch is scheduled for 10:10 p.m. Eastern Time.

The Nationals got the 7-2 win on Friday night, spearheaded by a solid pitching performance from John Lannan. Lannan also got it done at the plate, bashing a home run to help his cause. It was a key win that erased some of the poor memories from a series loss to the lowly Houston Astros early in the week.

Tom Gorzelanny will get the call for the Nationals despite suffering an injury in his last start in Atlanta. Gorzelanny has evidently healed and will be looking to get the win. Ted Lily will oppose Gorzelanny for the Dodgers, as he hopes to send the series to a rubber match on Sunday.
