Washington Nationals catcher Jose Lobaton waits for a challenge on a pick off call during Game Five of the 2017 NLDS. © Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports Washington Nationals catcher Jose Lobaton waits for a challenge on a pick off call during Game Five of the 2017 NLDS.

The Nationals and Cubs battled it out in an instant classic on Thursday night, in a game that lasted over four-and-a-half hours.

When it was all said and done, the Cubs won Game 5 of the National League Division Series by a 9-8 margin, and will advance to take on the Dodgers.

The loss for the Nationals added to the long-standing history of playoff losses for a Washington D.C. pro sports team. The Nationals, Wizards, Capitals and Redskins are now a combined 3-14 in winner-take-all playoff games over the last 12 seasons, and this loss was certainly tough to swallow for fans, given the number of miscues the team committed.

Cubs find themselves in familiar spot, facing elimination

  Cubs find themselves in familiar spot, facing elimination CHICAGO - Jon Lester had the roaring crowd shaking Wrigley Field to its foundation. Turns out, his rare pickoff late in the game was about all the Chicago Cubs gave their fans to celebrate. With a chance to knock the Nationals out of the playoffs, the defending World Series champions got shut down by an ailing Stephen Strasburg in a 5-0 loss on Wednesday. That sends their NL Division Series back to Washington for a decisive Game 5 on Thursday. Lose that one, and the Cubs can forget about another parade."I don't think anybody likes having their backs against the wall," Lester said.But the Cubs have been there, done that and come away with the biggest prize of all.

But it wasn’t all their fault, either, as the Nationals were on the wrong end of a controversial call, and it happened in the biggest moment of the game, when they appeared to have closer Wade Davis on the ropes.

The play in question happened in the eighth inning, when the Nationals had runners on first and second, with two outs. Trea Turner was at the plate, and during the at-bat, Jose Lobaton was caught off the first-base bag. Willson Contreras threw to Anthony Rizzo, who applied the tag. Lobaton was ruled safe, but the play was reviewed and overturned, although it sure looked to be inconclusive.

The inning ended on that play, and social media exploded just moments after. Here are some of the best tweets.

And the memes came rolling in as well.

It’s hard not to feel bad for Nats fans, especially since the team got hosed earlier in the game on a blown strikeout call.
