During the marathon of a 162-game baseball season, there are thrilling moments that highlight the successes of every club, from the front runner to the cellar dweller. The 2014 Washington Nationals are no exception, as they have sparked excitement throughout The District while returning to postseason play for the second time in three years.

After trailing 5-0 in their contest of the San Francisco Giants, the Nationals’ bats came alive in a huge, 14-6 victory. Ten consecutive batters reached safely in a six-run sixth inning, turning a 6-2 deficit into an 8-6 lead, all while a friendly pigeon viewed the action from a patch of grass in shallow left-center field. The comeback, which helped the Nationals go 9-1 in a 10-game, late-August homestand, earned a spot in our top “Signature Moments” of the 2014 regular season.



Down 5-0 to the San Francisco Giants, the Nationals rallied for a huge win — with the help of a feathery friend.
