Someone should go check on Yasiel Puig. The Los Angeles Dodgers' phenom might be dangerously low on swag because Jayson Werth seemed to use up all of it on Wednesday night.

With the Washington Nationals trailing the Miami Marlins 7-6 in the bottom of the eighth, Werth delivered a go-ahead grand slam. He then delivered a grand swag bat flip. The game-winning longball came after Marlins reliever Carlos Marmol intentionally walked Anthony Rendon to load the bases. Based on the epic way he flipped his bat after crushing the second pitch he saw from Marmol, Werth didn't seem to appreciate the free pass ahead of him.

"I was trying to go in and get a ground ball," Marmol told Juan C. Rodriguez of the Sun Sentinel after the Nats' 10-7 win. "The ball stayed a little over the middle and he hit it good."

Werth did hit it good. He then flipped his bat even better.

BAT FLIP!
