A nude streaker was the true MVP of Wednesday's suspended game between the Washington Nationals and the Cincinnati Reds.

According to USA Today, the game was in the fourth inning when a heavy storm rolled through and a downpour started over Nationals Park. After a three-hour-long delay, the game was ultimately rescheduled to be played as a doubleheader on Thursday.

Still, the delay did not stop one eager fan, who ran out fully nude onto the grounds from center field after a crew rolled out a tarp to cover the field from the heavy rain.

Security tried to stop the streaker, USA Today reported, but he managed to evade them and slid head-first right into the large tarp roller, where he hid.

The streaker reportedly spent several moments inside the roller — and was photographed peeking out with a big smile on his face — until he came out and was arrested on the spot.

According to the Washington Post, the crowd cheered from the stands during the entire incident.

Washinton's overall record this season stands at 20-24, while Cincinnati is 21-25.
