Nats' Rendon goes 6-for-6, with 3 HRs, 10 RBIs

The Nationals' Anthony Rendon became just the second player in MLB history to have six hits, three home runs and 10 RBIs in a game, doing so Sunday against the Mets.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

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.

What a day for Anthony Rendon! He becomes the first player since Garret Anderson in 2007 to drive in 10 runs in a game, slamming his third home run -- off Mets backup catcher Kevin Plawecki -- to cap a 6-for-6 day that included five runs scored and a double. The Nats slammed three homers off Plawecki in his second inning of work.

Nationals to adjust without Eaton (0:45)

ESPN Stats and Information  

Part of the draw with Adam Eaton was the team-friendly deal he signed in March 2016. If the Nationals picked up both team options, they would pay him a total of $38.4 million over the next five seasons. All that for a player who was the fifth-best outfielder the previous three seasons, based on wins above replacement.

Conforto collects 2 homers against Nats (0:39)

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Two huge wins for the Mets to beat Max Scherzer on Friday and Stephen Strasburg today, right as their season seemed on the brink of falling apart. Michael Conforto continues to rake with two home runs, including one off reliever Enny Romero, his first hit off a lefty this season.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

The Mets used a pair of Michael Conforto homers and a parade of relievers to win their second straight over the Nats in DC, 5-3. Bryce Harper fanned three times for the second straight day, only the second time in his career that's happened, and Daniel Murphy went hitless for just the second time in 24 games against his former team.

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Nats cleanup hitter Ryan Zimmerman is on pace to win the Triple Crown. His 8th inning blast to deep left center - which landed squarely in the Seven Line Army and cut the Mets lead to 4-3 - gives him 11 bombs on the season, tied for most in the bigs. He also leads the majors in batting (.402), and RBI's (26).

Eddie Matz ESPN Senior Writer 

Ryan Zimmerman's RBI single gave the Nats a 1-0 lead over the Mets. It also gave him 25 RBI's, tied for most in the majors with teammates Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy. Needless to say, Washington's offense is clicking.
