The Washington Nationals have won their first World Series in franchise history, so let’s revisit the best moments of the postseason.

The Washington Nationals finally won their first World Series title in franchise history–and it was the first year without Bryce Harper.

They started the season 19-31, and Dave Martinez was likely to be fired if the team kept losing. Well, they didn’t keep losing.

All they did was win in fact. They had the best record since then and rode that momentum all the way until they dogpiled on the mound.

So, with that said let’s revisit the best moments in the best month in Nationals history from the Wild Card game all the way up to Game 7 of the World Series.


Juan Soto go-ahead double in Wild Card Game

Washington Nationals phenom Juan Soto was not a very known player before the Wild Card game outside of the nation’s capital, but people got to know him throughout the postseason, and it started with the NL Wild Card Game.

It seemed like the game was over, as Milwaukee Brewers closer Josh Hader was in the game but Juan Soto said not so fast.

He hit a bases-clearing double that brought in the go-ahead run, thanks to Trent Grisham who let the ball get passed him.

This double would propel the Nats to the National League Division Series to face the #1 seed in the National League, the Los Angeles Dodgers. They would very soon learn who the real #1 team in the National League was. Let’s move to the top moments in the NLDS.
