The Marlins won 3-2 with a walk-off homer by Bryan Petersen. With the loss, it is not possible for the Washington Nationals to finish over .500. Nats current record is 79-81 (one game was not made up so there are only a total 161 games).  With a win last night and today, the Nats would have finished over .500 for the first time since moving to DC.

A few photos from Nationals v. Marlins game on Tuesday, September 27, 2011.

Happy 27th Birthday John Lannan!

Lots of water accumulated on field and grounds crew worked hard to repair damage

We met the Marlins "Santa"

Former National Emilio Bonifacio

3B Coach Bo Porter
(With Ozzie Guillen looking like he'll be the next Marlins
Manager, hopefully Bo stays in DC!)

Steve Lombardozzi played 3rd base while Ryan Zimmerman rode the pine

Doug Slaten pitched the 9th inning (game was tied at two)

With one out shy of extra innings, Slaten gave up a solo shot
to Bryan Petersen (his second of the season)

The attendance was 21,902, however, I have no idea where 17,000 of those people were sitting.

On Wednesday, September 28, 2011, the last baseball game will be played at Sun Life Stadium. It is also the last game for the "Florida Marlins" who will officially become the "Miami Marlins" on November 11, 2011.

If you've never been to Sun Life Stadium (previously known as Land Shark, Joe Robbie, etc.), it is a multipurpose stadium and home to the Miami Dolphins, University of Miami football and Florida Marlins. It definitely reminds me of good 'ol RFK.

Here are a few photos of Sun Life Stadium on the second to last home game.
