6/17/06 Linescore of the Day: Johnny Damon

4 for 6, 2 2B. HR (GS), 2 runs, 5 rbis

Damon had a fantastic day against the Nats. One base short of the cycle. His grand slam in the fifth put the Yanks ahead for good with a 9-2 lead…

…well maybe..

…actually not.

The Nats, who were coming off a five game losing streak, decided to play ball in the bottom of the fifth. The answered NY’s 7-run fifth with 4 of their own. And it was a Nationals baseball show the rest of the way.

Final Score: Nationals 11 Yankees 9

Daryle Ward, who probably should get the LSOTD, was 2 for 2 with a homer, 3 runs and 2 rbis. The relief staff of Stanton/Rausch/Cordero held the Bronx Bombers scoreless while the Nats did their business.

Too bad the Nats’ unfaithful who left the game early (many were seen heading home in the top of fifth), weren’t able to see one of the best comebacks since coming to D.C.
