Washington Nationals shortstop Ian Desmond (20) checks his throw to first as New York Mets' Jordany Valdespin (1) is safe at second during the fifth inning of a baseball game at Nationals Park Tuesday in Washington.
WASHINGTON — Steve Lombardozzi's sacrifice fly in the ninth Tuesday night gave the Washington Nationals their first late-inning comeback win of the season, capping a two-run rally for a 3-2 victory over the New York Mets.
The Nationals won for the first time this season when trailing after six innings. They snapped a two-game skid and moved back to .500 at 29-29.
Against closer Bobby Parnell (4-2), Ryan Zimmerman led off the ninth with a double to right-center, barely beating the tag at second, and then advanced to third on a wild pitch.
Adam LaRoche singled Zimmerman home to tie the game. Ian Desmond doubled to left-center and Roger Bernadina was intentionally walked to load the bases with none out for Lombardozzi, whose fly ball down the left-field line was more than sufficient to score LaRoche.
