The Nationals won their longest regular-season game in franchise history thanks to a late-game blunder by the Twins and a big fly from Chris Heisey.
Down to their last out in the 15th, the Nationals tied the game at 5–5 on a throwing error from catcher John Ryan Murphy, who fielded a bunt from pitcher Oliver Perez and airmailed the ball to first.
One inning later, Heisey walked it off in the 16th, hitting the latest walk-off homer in Nationals/Expos history.
The game took five hours and 56 minutes, and helped the Nationals out to a league-best 14–4 start.
