As is customary around the MLB, the moments following a victory usually results in the three outfielders meeting up to celebrate. As they converge toward center field, some sort of dance, handshake or motion is shared between the group.
With the Nationals finishing off a three-game sweep of the Chicago Cubs on Sunday, Juan Soto added a little something extra to mark the occasion.
Mimicking the sweeping motion, the left fielder didn't need a real broom to show Cubs fans what his team had just done.
Soto and the Nats have every reason to celebrate a dominant Players' Weekend in the Windy City. Going against a Cubs team that has been strong at home, Washington came in and took care of business all three days.
After picking up 9-3 and 7-2 wins on Friday and Saturday, the Nationals battled through 11 back-and-forth innings on Sunday to earn a 7-5 victory. Soto played a large part in the outcome, finishing 3-for-6 with an RBI as he continues to rake in 2019.
Getting a sweep in Chicago's NL ballpark isn't all that come, as the weekend was the first time the Cubs were swept at home all season and the first time since 2005 the Nationals have pulled off the feat at Wrigley. To put that in perspective, Soto was only seven years old at the time.
Everything is clicking for the Nats as of late, and the sweep on the North Side is just the latest enjoyable moment.
