Nationals offense goes supernova, explodes for 23 runs against Mets

The 23 runs, including 10 drove in by Anthony Rendon, are a franchise record.

The Nationals offense, even minus Adam Eaton, is unstoppable right now.

Washington has been raking all week — they had already scored 51 runs Monday through Saturday — but put together its masterpiece on Sunday, tallying an insane 23 runs against the Mets.

Yep, you read that right. 23. As in, the number Michael Jordan wore, or the number that Jim Carrey movie is about.

The burst came in part due to an early exit by Mets ace Noah Syndergaard, who left the game due to injury. But it also came due to the insane bat of Anthony Rendon, who went six for six with three home runs and 10 RBI.

Rendon raised his average from .235 to .278 on the afternoon.

If Washington can figure out their bullpen problems, its road to a World Series is going to be tough to block. Because it seems like it'll be nearly impossible to outhit them.
