The Nationals made club history on Tuesday night with their third walk-off win in a row in an 11-inning victory over the D-backs.

After doing it against the Pirates on Saturday and Sunday, Washington set a team record for most consecutive walk-offs thanks to a two-out solo homer in extra innings from Adam LaRoche that extended the Nationals' winning streak to seven games.

The three consecutive walk-offs tie a franchise mark set by the 1988 Expos, who did it against the Cubs and the Cardinals over a three-day span in late July that year.

The Nationals are the second team to string together three in a row this season. The Rays accomplished the feat in late May with a win over the A's and a pair over the Red Sox. The Phillies and Rangers both did it 2013.

The 1986 Astros hold the record for consecutive walk-off wins with five, which included three straight over the Expos.
