The Washington Nationals defeated the Chicago Cubs, 5-4, in a 12-inning thriller Wednesday. The rubber match of the three-game series was back and forth in the late innings, and Chicago took the lead into the bottom of the 12th only to see the Nationals tie it on a Michael A. Taylor single and win it on this shot from Jayson Werth.
It was a dramatic finish indeed, and Werth was clearly quite pumped up. His postgame interview with MASN's Dan Kolko was one for the ages.

Werth will probably incur a fine for this, but he clearly doesn't mind. The crowd loved it, and even Kolko laughed about it afterwards.
It's Werth's second walk-off in four days, the other coming Sunday against the Phillies. That one secured a sweep, while this one clinched a series victory over the best team in baseball. The Nationals have won 8 of their last 10 games and lead the NL East by 5 games.
