Let's relive the craziest comebacks of this season so far

The Nationals' comeback Thursday night was downright bonkers. Trailing the Marlins, 9-0, going into the bottom of the fourth inning, the Nats' offense roared to life on the back of a Trea Turner grand slam, putting up 14 unanswered runs on the way to an invigorating 14-12 victory.

The nine-run deficit erased by the Nats marks the biggest come-from-behind win of the 2018 season so far, but they aren't the only ballclub this year to pull a Seabiscuit. Here are some of the other amazing comebacks we've seen this season.
Angels on April 6th
Down, 6-0, going into the bottom of the second against the Athletics, things looked dreary for the Angels. At least they did before superhuman entity and international pop sensation Shohei Ohtani stepped to the dish and knocked an awe-inspiring tater to the center field rockpile at Angel Stadium.

Sho-time's third dinger in as many days sparked the Halos to overtake the A's, 13-9.
Cubs on April 14th
The Cubs limped into the bottom of the sixth against the Braves down, 10-2. But when you've got unlimited access to Jason Heyward speeches, Javy Baez magic and Ben Zobrist veteran grit, anything is possible.
After slicing the deficit to five going into the eighth, the Cubs put together one of the more bizarre innings in recent memory, somehow conjuring up nine runs without the help of a single longball.

Brewers on May 11th
Few teams in baseball seem to be having more fun than the Brewers. They've been pulling out close, heart-racing wins all season long, and their insane comeback victory against the Rockies back in May was exactly that.

Down six after four innings, the Brew Crew chipped away before a two-run blast from Many Piña and an RBI knock from Travis Shaw gave Milwaukee the lead in the 9th. 
Yankees on June 20th
When every single human being in your lineup is capable of a majestic tater at the drop of a hat, you're never totally out of a baseball game.

After being held scoreless for the first four frames to find themselves down, 5-0, the Baby Bombers methodically knocked away at the usually reliable Mariners bullpen before a Giancarlo Stanton megablast gave the Yankees a walk-off win.
