For his late-game heroics, Jayson Werth was rewarded with quite the delicious confection by a Washington Nationals fan. 

On Thursday, Werth provided yet another example of why these may be some of the best divisional series in MLB's recent history. 

His walk-off home run secured a Game 5 bid for the Nationals and gave hope to all the fans in Washington, D.C. 

How does one go about applauding such an act properly? Well, he or she gets into the kitchen and cooks up something delicious. 

The Washington Post reports Werth has been made into a cupcake. Well, not the actual man, rather his likeness. Because, the counter to that would be a tad weird. 

Here is one cupcake of Werth. 

The little dessert was baked up by Lara Stuckey, owner of Fluffy Thoughts Cakes, and she is selling them to fans at $5 a pop. 

Dem some pricey cupcakes, but regular ol' Nationals cupcakes run about $2.50. So rest easy that you can still stuff your face for under five bucks. 

Stuckey has more for us on her frosted sluggers. "We’ve been selling Nats cupcakes all week," she said, "but after last night, we knew that we had to make a special one just for Werth. We keep selling out of them. But we’ll be making them all day."

We applaud Stuckey, especially considering how hard it is to make men with beards look appetizing. Take a gander at James Harden as a cake

Best reason to go on a diet. 

For Nationals fans, they will be hoping the sugar high lasts into the next round.
