This isn't what fans had in mind when they hoped for the Nationals to heat up late in the game.

With the bats on the field mostly silenced throughout an extra-innings pitcher's duel, a light tower above right field caught fire in the 11th inning.

The fire did not spread, and play on the field went on uninterrupted.

Though the game itself was not halted, sections 228, 226, and 224 were emptied as a precaution. 

The Diamondbacks prevailed in 11 innings by a score of 3-2.
