Walk-off home runs by Ryan Zimmerman and Ryan Raburn send fans home happy

  • David Whitlock

Any major league baseball fan can attest, witnessing a walk-off win, no matter how attained, is the most exciting way to cap a Friday evening at the ballpark.  Elation as you watch your hometown nine mobs the hero while the visitors walk sadly off into their dugout.  Such occasions are magnified when the walk-off is a result of a home run blast.  Washington Nationals and Cleveland Indians fans both got treated Friday night by the “brothers Ryan”.  Ryan Zimmerman (Nationals over Mets) and Ryan Raburn (Indians over Rangers) send their 2nd place teams home happy, and a half-game closer to first.  Watch: (courtesy of MLB.com – Zimmerman and Raburn)

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
