WASHINGTON — Jayson Werth is probably the quirkiest offensive player on the Nationals, if not the quirkiest player on the roster.

His numerous instant-classic postgame interviews from this season drive that point home.

On Tuesday night, Werth added another weird moment to his catalog. In the top of the fifth inning, the Nationals outfielder hit a routine grounder to second base. Because he is Jayson Werth, it quickly became not routine.

By way of very unofficial count, it looks like Werth takes three full steps toward the pitcher’s mound before he finally rounds toward first base on the fourth step.

Werth was sure to be thrown out even if he’d taken a direct route to the base, so at least he enjoyed the scenic route.
