Washington Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon entered Sunday’s game against the New York Mets with just five RBI on the season. By the end of the day, he had tripled┬áthat total by becoming the 13th man in MLB history with 10-plus RBI in a single game.

Aided in part by three home runs, which accounted for four of his 10 RBI, Rendon went a perfect 6-for-6 from the batter’s box to put in one of the most productive outings any batter has had in one game in the history of the league.

He became just the second player in MLB history since RBI became official in 1920 to log six hits, three home runs and 10 RBI in a single game.

And as an oh, by the way, the Nationals crushed the Mets, 23-5 in the game — one that saw Mets’ ace Noah Syndergaard exit with an injury to his lat that will require an MRI.
