Anthony Rendon added insult to injury suffered by the New York Mets on Sunday as the Washington Nationals rolled to a 23-5 victory at Nationals Park.
There were huge numbers all around for Washington, led by Rendon's 6-for-6, 3-home run, 10-RBI effort.

Rendon became the fifth player in franchise history with three home runs in a game and the 13th player in major league history with at least 10 RBI in a game and the first since Garret Anderson in August 2007 .
Washington had two five-run innings, two four-run innings and while pounding five Mets pitchers for 23 hits.
The 23 runs were a franchise record for the Nationals.
Ryan Zimmerman and Matt Wieters each had three hits for Washington. Bryce Harper scored four runs.
Despite the support, Nationals starter Joe Ross was unable to go the mandatory five innings to pick up the easy victory. The "W" went to Matt Albors, who pitched two innings of relief.
The game started off poorly for the Mets, with righty ace Noah Syndergaard exiting the game after 1.1 innings, having allowed five runs on five hits.
Syndergaard, who had refused an MRI despite missing a start last week, now will undergo the procedure to figure out what is ailing him.
We an MRI scheduled for 7 a.m. The preliminary diagnosis was possible lat strain, which may or may not be related to his previous complaint which was in the biceps, Mets GM Sandy Alderson said. So well just have to wait and see what happens tomorrow.
