John Jaso homered in the third and delivered a game-winning double in the 10th as the A's beat the Nationals 4-3 on Saturday.

Jaso thought he might have a second homer in the 10th, but it bounced off the wall in left instead. Fortunately, there were two outs, so Nick Punto was able to run right away and score from first to win the game. It was Jaso's second ever walkoff hit. He has three homers in 80 at-bats this year, matching his total from 207 at-bats last year. He's combined with Derek Norris to give the A's terrific production from the catcher spot so far this year.
