The Nationals are one game away from heading to the National League Championship Series. But, at one point, fans worried the post-season run would be over—until Jayson Werth came up to bat in the bottom of the ninth inning and gave the team the deciding win.

Aside from the win, baseball fans also witnessed another happy moment during Thursday’s Nationals game. Army Sergeant Hector Banda surprised his wife Melissa and their two children, Ethan and Penny during the game. Banda has been serving in Afghanistan for the last four and a half months.
