Nats celebrate biggest comeback in team history by dousing Dan Uggla in chocolate syrup

What's sweeter than the taste of victory? The taste of the biggest come-from-behind win in team history, probably. And chocolate syrup. Definitely chocolate syrup.

The Nationals got to experience all of those things thanks to a 13-12 win over the Braves in one of the weirdest games of the 2015 season. Tuesday's contest featured 32 combined hits. The Braves hopped out to a 9-1 lead after two innings, but that wasn't quite enough.

Freddie Freeman and A.J. Pierzynski each had four knocks for the Braves. Denard Span had five, including three doubles and a dinger for Washington. Pitcher Doug Fister was used as a pinch-runner.

Dan Uggla, a former Brave, was a double shy of the cycle and hit the game-winning home run in the top of the ninth.

And when it was all said and done, the Nationals celebrated the biggest comeback in team history the only way they knew how ... with dessert:
