Anthony Rendon went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer that gave the Nationals their only runs Monday against the Orioles.

Good timing for Rendon, what with him being included in the NL Final Vote for a spot on the All-Star team. He really shouldn't have had to rely on that to get him on to the squad in the first place.

Anthony Rendon went 1-for-4 with a walk and a two-run double as the Nationals defeated the Rockies 7-1 on Tuesday.

Rendon added to the Nationals' lead, as his two-run double in the fourth inning gave his club a 5-0 lead. With Ryan Zimmerman back at third base, Rendon got the start at second base. The Nationals will do whatever they have to in order to keep his bat in the lineup, as the 24-year-old is slashing a productive .281/.339/.479 with 12 home runs, 48 RBI, and six stolen bases this season.

Anthony Rendon went 3-for-4 and drove home a run, leading the Nationals to a 3-0 victory over the Cubs in Chicago on Saturday.

Rendon finished a home run shy of the cycle. He doubled and scored on a wild pitch to get the Nats on the board in the sixth inning, then drove home a run with an RBI triple in the eighth and came around to score the team's final run. He's enjoying a terrific season at the dish, slashing .282/.341/.485 with 12 homers, 44 RBI and six stolen bases.

Anthony Rendon finished 3-for-7 with a home run in the Nationals' win over the Brewers on Tuesday.

With the Nats trailing by a run in the eighth inning, Rendon got jiggy with a Will Smith pitch for his 12th home run of the year. His 49 runs scored are among the most in the National League, and the 24-year-old is sporting a .276/.336/.479 line through 72 games. The former first-round pick is coming into his own nicely in 2014.

Anthony Rendon went 1-for-3 with two runs scored as the Nationals beat the Braves 4-1 on Sunday.

Rendon walked and scored the Nationals' first run of the game in the first inning, and he doubled and scored in the eighth for some insurance. The third baseman has hits in seven of his last eight games with six runs scored over that time. His 47 runs scored is ninth-best in the National League, and his .275/.335/.475 line has plenty of fantasy owners happy, too.

Anthony Rendon smacked a game-tying two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning against the Braves on Friday.

The Nationals were down to their last out against All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel before Rendon deposited a 98 mph fastball over the left-center field fence to tie things up. The 24-year-old has gone deep twice in his last three games and is now up to 11 home runs on the year. With his .267/.328/.465 batting line to go along with 40 RBI, 45 run scored, and five stolen bases, Rendon has been a very useful option in mixed leagues this season.

Anthony Rendon (hand) will likely return to the starting lineup Tuesday.

Rendon has missed three straight games with a sore right hand, but Nationals manager Matt Williams feels that he's close to returning. "He’s good," said Williams. "He’s a little bit sore still. He hit today. He’s a lot better today than he was yesterday. I think one more day, he’ll be ready to go tomorrow. Still a little sore, though."
Jun 10 - 10:05 AM

Anthony Rendon (hand) remained out of the Nationals' lineup Monday.

Jun 8 - 1:51 PM

Anthony Rendon (hand) is not in the lineup for the Nationals' game against the Padres on Saturday.

Rendon left Friday's game with a swollen right hand, so it's no surprise that the Nationals will play it safe with their rising star. The 24-year-old is hitting .272/.328/470 with nine home runs and 40 runs scored this year. Kevin Frandsen started at third base on Saturday.
Jun 7 - 6:15 PM

Anthony Rendon is listed as day-to-day after leaving Friday's game with a swollen right hand.

Rendon sustained the injury while fielding a ground ball in Friday's game. He's unlikely to play on Saturday, but shouldn't require a trip to the disabled list.
