    You lost the exchange on move 24 but 5 inaccuracies and 1 mistake by your opponent was plenty to offset that.

    Strength White Black
    Excellent 32 23
    Good 9 12
    Inaccuracy (?!) 2 5
    Mistake (?) 1 1
    Blunder (??) 0 0
    Forced 0 2
    Best Move 65.9% 37.5%
    Avg. Diff 0.13 1.31

    I assume the move you are asking about is 24.e5, which does sacrifice the exchange, but you get two connected passed pawns for the exchange, and your pieces are very active. In fact, after 27...Rb4, you have a very large advantage. Of course, your opponent could have played better! On my computer, the engine says your best move would have been 24.Rd2 and evaluates that move as about half a pawn (0.50) better than 24.e5. A half-pawn difference is not a blunder; it's probably just an inaccuracy
