The 0-1 pitch came from Jared Hughes, Trea Turner swung and blasted it into the bullpen in left-center field. The grand slam put the Nationals ahead 6-4, a lead they wouldn't give up. With the Pirates' win over the Cubs in Pittsburgh, the Nationals clinched a postseason berth.
The moment was electric on its own, but even more so given the circumstances.
The fans went nuts.
It sounded great in Spanish.
It sounded great on the radio.

Not even a Bryce Harper homer in the next inning could take away from the moment.
The Nats are Wild Card bound.
