Dan Uggla makes backwards throw and still gets out (GIF)

One 2013's funnier plays happened during the Braves-Nationals game Tuesday night when Dan Uggla actually threw the ball backwards on fielder's choice to first, but the team still got the out at home.

Confused? Here's the breakdown:

Uggla whiffs on the throw, then picks up the ball. His relay throw to Freddie Freeman led to Denard Span being thrown out at home on a 3-6-4-3-2 double play. Or 3-6-4-4-3-2 —depending how you look at it.

Washington still won 4-0, though, and swept the doubleheader. They've now won 27 of their last 37.
