Two things had to happen for the Nationals to clinch the NL East title Saturday night. They had to beat the Pirates, and the Mets had to lose to the Phillies.
Both of those things happened, and the Nats wasted no time getting the celebration going.
And they kept it going.

Then the team left the clubhouse, apparently to go roam Pittsburgh and find some Nats fans to celebrate with.
Bryce Harper always talks about loving Washington, D.C. and after winning another NL East crown, he honored one of the local legends from the Rio games.

Katie Ledecky was one of the stars of the Olympics and the Bethesda resident appears to have given Harper a swimcap to celebrate clinching the NL East.
She reached out to Harper on twitter and appreciated the MVP sporting the swim cap.
