A Buffalo Walk-Off! Who says he needs rest? Now we go on Strasburg watch: Postgame

This is a bittersweet win. The Nationals pulled Stephen Strasburg after 42 pitches in the 3rd inning with an apparent arm issue.

The good news is the Nationals fought from behind to take the game to extra innings, and then came from behind in extra innings to win it on a Wilson Ramos game winning single in the 11th inning as the Nats win 5-4, and the Nats moved to a new season high of 25 games above .500 with an 82-57 record.

Mat Latos was the Nationals 10th pitcher of the night and needed just 5 pitches and 3 strikes on Matt Kemp to secure his first win with the Nationals.

Daniel Murphy reached the 100 RBI milestone to become the 4th Nats player to reach that level joining Ryan Zimmerman, Adam Dunn and Adam LaRoche in that exclusive club.

The Nationals brought in 4 players off the bench who were a combined for 3-4 as Stephen Drew, Anthony Rendon and Chris Heisey all had key hits. Wilmer Difo started at 3rd base to give Rendon a day-off, and Difo went 1-2 in the game with a hustle single.

Danny Espinosa turned a slick Web Gem tonight on a diving play behind 2nd base to get a force play.

Boxscore 9 7 16
