Matt Wieters' first bunt hit of his career was a thing of absolute beauty

Postseason baseball is crazy -- that's what makes it great. During Game 5 of the NLDS presented by T-Mobile, the Nationals made sure to answer back from the Cubs' quick-scoring first inning.

During the bottom of the second with no outs, Daniel Murphy smacked a solo shot over the fence. Anthony Rendon singled and Matt Wieters follow it with a beautiful bunt (the first of his career) that landed perfectly down the third-base line. Let's not forget the minor detail that Wieters was batting left-handed against a shift when this occurred.

Beautiful.

MLB.com's Mark Feinsand said he hasn't seen a bunt like it since, well, a fictional movie character:

The bunt was before Michael A. Taylor's three-run bomb to put the team up, 4-1, over the Cubs. Unfortunately for Nats fans, the Cubs came back to win the wild affair, 9-8. Tune in to Cubs-Dodgers NLCS Game 1 presented by Camping World on Saturday at 8 p.m. ET on TBS.
