It took just 15 pitches in the bottom of the first inning for the St. Louis Cardinals to completely unravel in Game 4 of the NLCS.

After scoring seven runs in the first frame, the Washington Nationals failed to score in the next seven innings. But it did not matter. The sweep was imminent

The Nationals were headed to their first World Series.

For the first time in 86 years, Washington D.C will host the fall classic. America's capital will be home to the biggest game of America's pastime. 

After losing baseball entirely for three decades, the nation's capital not only has a team but one of the best in the land.

When Victor Robles camped under the fly ball from Tommy Edman and the wait was over. The celebration could then begin. 


Here is how it all went down:

WNBA Champion Elena Delle Donne get the night started.

And then Patrick Corbin kept the great run of Nats starting pitchers going with a three strikeouts to begin the game.

We also got a serious edition of Baby Shark when Gerardo Parra pinch hit. 

But the top video is best heard and not seen: Charlie Slowes does it again.

Washington Capitals announcer John Walton tried to do his best Charlie & Dave.

Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice, who is embracing his role as D.C. sports superfan, had a great view.

This video from a fan down the left field line is also excpetional. 

The Nationals exploded out of the dugout when they recorded the 27th out.

And the view from outside of Nationals Park was quite magnificent, as well.

The fans in the Bullpen on Half Street went wild, too.

Watch the crowd from center field. 

The view from just behind Robles as he runs in after catching the final out is unreal.

There were hugs. Lots and lots of hugs.

Howie Kendrick, the 36-year-old who has found the fountain of youth, was named NLCS MVP.

It was a special moment for Mr. National: Ryan Zimmerman.

The Nationals are headed to the World Series and the celebration got wet and wild.

Even Stephen Strasburg has totally cut loose.

Like really cut loose.

Zim deserved it all.

Closer Sean Doolittle brought out the lightsaber.

And then it was time for Brian Dozier to do "Calma."
