 Lopez's go-ahead double
The Nationals were happy to trade their three long balls for Barry Bonds' historic 756th career homer off Mike Bacsik, and after shrugging off the pageantry and celebration, Washington surged ahead in the eighth inning. Felipe Lopez, who had homered in the third, doubled home the go-ahead run in a four-run frame. Austin Kearns belted a two-run shot, and Brian Schneider tied the game in the fourth with a solo homer.
