The Nationals almost squandered another opportunity, but scored a tying run in the ninth to set the stage for a three-run walk-off HR in the 10th.
Michael Taylor will be out of the lineup again with a bruised knee, but MRI results show he shouldn't be out for long.
Nationals reliever Aaron Barrett had Tommy John surgery on Thursday and will miss most — if not all — of the 2016 season.
