Adam LaRoche hits pinch hit homer in the ninth; finishes with 5 RBIs in CRAZY 14 inning game
Washington Nationals first basemen Adam LaRoche hit a pinch hit two-run home run in the ninth inning and would finish with 5 RBIs in a game that went 14 innings. The Los Angeles Dodgers had plenty of their own dramatics as well as both teams had game-tying home runs and errors to make for one of the craziest games you’ll see.
The top of the ninth inning is when the game started getting crazy as the Nationals would actually take the lead 3-2, before a Jayson Werth error with two outs in the bottom of the ninth. Werth dropped a routine fly ball that would have ended the game, but instead the error allowed the game-tying run to score from first base.
After leading the entire game 2-0 until the ninth inning, the Los Angeles Dodgers would come back from a 3-2 deficit and then a 5-3 hole in the 13 inning as the dramatics continued when Carl Crawford hit a game tying two-run shot of his own.
The game lasted lasted 5 hours, 34 minutes, and finally ended when Nationals pitcher Blake Treinen closed the door the final two-innings for the win.
