Desmond’s first career grand slam in the 11th inning led to a 6-2 comeback win over the Phillies for the Nats. His tweet earlier yesterday may have foreshadowed his moment.
Well, apparently I’ll be #EatingFace today.

After the game, Desmond said his “eat face grand slam” tasted good, and then he and Ryan Mattheus celebrated appropriately on Twitter.
Oh yeah. #EatFace

According to an image tweeted by the Nationals’ team account, #eatface was trending on Twitter in Washington after Desmond’s blast, accompanied by #Nats, Ian Desmond, and #steak, for good measure. “Eat Face” is the new Natitude.
Here’s the shot, in all its glory.
