WATCH: Ryan Zimmerman hits inside-the-park HR after scary collision in Marlins OF

During Sunday's Marlins-Nationals game (MIA 5, WAS 1), Washington first baseman Ryan Zimmerman notched an inside-the-park home run, but as you're about to see a scary set of circumstances led to that home run ...

As you can see that was a potentially scary outfield collision between Miami center fielder Marcell Ozuna and right fielder Giancarlo Stanton. Fortunately, Stanton and Ozuna were both able to remain the game, and in fact Stanton later hit his 11th homer of the season.

With the win, the Marlins are now just 2 1/2 games behind the Nationals in the NL East, albeit from fourth-place position.
