Ryan McMahon drew a bases-loaded walk in the ninth-inning, resulting in the first walk-off pitch clock violation in major league history as the Colorado Rockies defeated the visiting Washington Nationals 8-7 on Saturday night.

With the Rockies trailing 7-6, Hunter Goodman and Jake Cave opened the ninth with singles against Washington closer Kyle Finnegan (2-4). After failing to sacrifice, Brenton Doyle grounded a single to left, scoring Goodman with the tying run. Ezequiel Tovar single to right, loading the bases with no outs. With a 3-2 count on McMahon, Finnegan was called for a pitch-clock violation, resulting in ball four.

McMahon had three hits including a homer, and Goodman and Brendan Rodgers also went deep for Colorado.

Jalen Beeks (4-3) pitched 1 1/3 scoreless innings for the win. Luis Garcia Jr. homered and CJ Abrams finished a triple short of the cycle, drove in two runs and scored twice for Washington.
