After years of choking in the playoffs, the Washington Nationals won the NL Wild Card game after some clutch heroics by Juan Soto (and a very spin-y baseball). The comeback win, aided also by veterans Ryan Zimmerman and Stephen Strasburg, started a wild celebration at Nationals Park.
“The [Capitals] are very inspirational to us. They show what a bond of brothers, guys coming together as one can do in this city,” Adam Eaton said recently. “And the way they partied afterward, I think everyone in this clubhouse would like to do as well. We’re not quite hockey players. I don’t know if we’re going to go swimming in fountains or anything but hopefully, that’ll inspire us to get there.”
The Nats didn’t go swimming, but they sure did have a wild celebration last night that even the Caps would be proud of.
Here are the best moments.
