Victor Robles gave Nationals fans something to cheer about on Wednesday afternoon. 

During the Nationals' game against the Chicago Cubs, center fielder Victor Robles made a spectacular diving catch to rob P.J. Higgins of at least a single. 

It got a big fist bump from pitcher Josiah Gray and it even drew some cheers from the crowd at Wrigley Field. 

The catch also preserved the 1-0 lead before Joey Meneses made it 2-0 in the top of the sixth inning. Chicago then responded in the top of the 7th when Nico Hoerner hit a solo home run to cut the lead in half.

The Nationals are looking to win their first series since late July when they took two out of three from the Los Angeles Dodgers.
