Anthony Rendon had two homers, a double and five RBI as the Nationals crushed the Mariners 10-1 on Tuesday.
That's not quite three homers and 10 RBI, like he had last month against the Mets, but it does make him the third player this year with multiple two-homer, five-RBI games, joining Jay Bruce and teammate Bryce Harper. Rendon has seven homers and 29 RBI in 42 games. May 23 - 9:56 PM

Anthony Rendon is not in the Nationals' lineup Sunday.

He's just getting a day off. Wilmer Difo is filling in at third base. Matt Wieters is also receiving some rest, as Jose Lobaton is at catcher.

Anthony Rendon smashed a three-run bomb in Saturday's big win over the Phillies.

He whacked a Vince Velasquez offering over the left field wall in the sixth inning with two aboard. Rendon has really turned his season around in the last week. He is now batting .290/.372/.477 with five homers and 22 RBI in 121 plate appearances.
May 6 - 11:14 PM

Anthony Rendon went 3-for-4 with a homer, a walk, and two RBI against the Phillies on Friday.

What a difference a week makes. Rendon was hitting .235 with a .578 OPS after last Friday’s loss to the Mets, but here he is with a .288 batting average and an .820 OPS. Obviously that is weighed heavily by his historic performance last Sunday, but he’s going to be fine.
May 5 - 10:57 PM

Anthony Rendon went 6-for-6 with three homers and 10 RBI as the Nationals destroyed the Mets 23-5 on Sunday.

Rendon was quiet during the Nationals' outburst at Coors Field, but he made up for it today, raising his average from .221 to .278 and tripling his RBI total from five to 15. What was shaping up as an extremely disappointing month of April for him now looks more than respectable after just nine innings of play. Rendon's is the first 10-RBI game in the majors since the Angels' Garret Anderson had one Aug. 21, 2007 against the Yankees. He appears to be just the third player ever with six hits and 10 RBI in a game, joining Jim Bottomley (1924) and Walker Cooper (1949).
Apr 30 - 5:32 PM

Anthony Rendon will get the day off Thursday.

Wilmer Difo is starting at third base and batting eighth in the afternoon finale at Coors Field. It's just a simple breather for Rendon.
Apr 27 - 1:05 PM

Anthony Rendon went 3-for-4 with an RBI against the Rockies on Monday.

Rendon is still looking for his first homer, but he has pushed his average up to .246 after a 3-for-28 start. He's struck out just five times in his last 11 games after doing so nine times in the first seven.
Apr 25 - 12:47 AM

Anthony Rendon went 3-for-6 and scored a run in a big win over the Braves on Wednesday.

All three hits were singles but it was a pleasant sight for his owners nonetheless. Rendon has been mired in a severe slump to start the season, so perhaps this is a sign he has turned things around. Even after tonight's strong game he is still batting just .226/.268/.264 with no homers and four RBI.
Apr 20 - 1:04 AM

Anthony Rendon went 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI as the Nationals dispatched of the Phillies in extra innings on Friday in Washington.

Rendon's run-scoring double tied the game at 2-2 in the seventh inning and forced the bonus baseball. He's having a rough go of it at the plate in the first few weeks of the season, hitting just .171/.216/.200, so hopefully this solid effort will get him going.
Apr 14 - 7:35 PM

Anthony Rendon is out of Tuesday's lineup versus the Cardinals.

It's just a day off for the scuffling Rendon. Stephen Drew will fill in at third base while Wilmer Difo will start at shortstop and hit second.
Apr 11 - 3:25 PM

Anthony Rendon is starting at third base and batting seventh for the Nationals on Friday against the Phillies.

Rendon batted sixth Wednesday and Thursday after missing the opener with a bruised calf, but he's now been moved down a spot after an 0-for-8 start. Jayson Werth, who has four hits -- including a homer -- in his last eight at-bats, has moved up from seventh to sixth in the batting order.
Apr 7 - 12:01 PM

Anthony Rendon is starting at third base and batting sixth for the Nationals on Thursday.

Rendon sat out Monday's opener with a bruised calf, but he's now played back-to-back days and appears fine. The Nats are going with their regular lineup versus the Marlins.
Apr 6 - 11:53 AM

Anthony Rendon (calf) is back in the Nationals' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins.

Rendon sat out Opening Day after injuring his calf late in spring training. He'll man third base and bat sixth against Marlins right-hander Dan Straily. Stephen Drew filled in for Rendon in Monday's opener.
Apr 5 - 2:40 PM

Anthony Rendon (calf) is not in the starting lineup for Opening Day against the Marlins.

Rendon recently fouled a ball off his calf and still isn't back to 100 percent. The hope is that he could be ready following Tuesday's off-day. Stephen Drew will fill in at third base. The full lineup for the Nationals against Edinson Volquez: Trea Turner SS, Adam Eaton CF, Bryce Harper RF, Daniel Murphy 2B, Ryan Zimmerman 1B, Jayson Werth LF, Drew 3B, Matt Wieters C, Stephen Strasburg SP.
Apr 3 - 9:25 AM

Nationals manager Dusty Baker on Friday wouldn't commit to Anthony Rendon (leg) being ready for Opening Day.

Rendon hasn't played since Monday after fouling a ball off his leg and is doing "so-so," according to Baker. It doesn't sound like he'll need a stint on the disabled list, but perhaps he might be limited at the beginning of the season. Rendon batted .250/.368/.417 with one homer this spring.
