Jayson Werth pulled off this amazing stop-slide while attempting to steal second during yesterday’s 6-5 Nationals win over the Astros. As soon as he realizes the throw has beaten him and he’s likely going to get tagged out he throws on the emergency brake and comes to a full stop in front of Jose Altuve’s swipe tag before elegantly popping up and stepping on the bag with his trailing foot. Then he throws in his own “safe!” gesture for good measure. It was beautiful, really.
