Bucs Barajas' big fly gives Bucs walk-off win

Want to play that game? OK, here's the Yin to your Yang.

That appeared to be what the Pirates and the Nationals were saying to each other all Tuesday night, when the Bucs got in the last word as Rod Barajas' two-run homer with two outs in the bottom of the ninth gave them a 5-4 victory at PNC Park.

It was the last act of high drama, which saw Andrew McCutchen get out of a sick bed to deliver his first homer, and A.J. Burnett arise from an unprecedented pratfall to shine.

Yes, this was the same Mr. Barajas who had been booed harshly by the crowd of 10,323 after his previous hitless at-bat had left him hitting .127, with not a single RBI.

"I was in a situation where I was able to get them back on my side," said Barajas. "Hope they'll give me a little leeway, and I can have a couple more weeks to get things going in the right direction."

Barajas' first homer of a trying season came off Henry Rodriguez, who had surrendered a one-out single to Alex Presley, and ushered him to third by burying consecutive breaking balls in the dirt for wild pitches.

On deck, Barajas took note while Rodriguez was fanning Yamaico Navarro for the second out.

"I was pretty confident. I know he throws hard," Barajas said of Rodriguez, "and I consider myself a fastball hitter. After seeing two breaking balls in the dirt, I figured chances were he wouldn't throw that again and would come hard. And I was ready to let it go."
