Rendon clubs 3 HRs as part of 10-RBI day

Anthony Rendon has himself a day hitting three home runs and driving in 10 runs as the Nationals cruise by the Mets.

MLB

Led by a historic outburst from Anthony Rendon, the Washington Nationals have capped a monster offensive month with the biggest outburst in franchise history -- 23 runs against the New York Mets. Among the Nats' 23 hits were seven homers, including three from Rendon, who had never before posted a multi-homer game. Rendon went 6 for 6, drove in 10 runs, scored five and finished with 16 total bases. According to baseball-reference.com, no one had hit those benchmarks in the same game. According to ESPN Stats & Info, Rendon is the second player in major-league history with six hits, three home runs and 10 RBI in a game. The other was Walker Cooper, who did it for the Reds in 1949. Meanwhile, Washington has scored 14 or more runs five times already this season. There have been only seven other such games in all of baseball, and no other team has done it more than once. Wow.
