  • Nationals' Joey Meneses: Homers, drives in four

    Meneses went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double and four RBI in a 13-4 win over the Phillies in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader. He also scored four runs and drew a walk.

    Meneses had himself a day at the plate on Saturday, beginning with a three-run double with two outs in the second inning to put the Nationals up 4-1. He followed that up with a homer to lead off the fifth - his seventh long ball since the start of September, to go along with 22 RBI and 17 runs scored. It was also the rookie first baseman's 11th multi-hit game in that 27-game span.

Voit has five RBI in his last five games and produced 10 RBI in the month of September, to go along with three homers.

  • Nationals' Anibal Sanchez: Earns fourth win

    Sanchez (4-6) earned the win Saturday, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks over five innings in a 13-4 victory over the Phillies. He struck out six.

    Sanchez gave up a leadoff triple to Kyle Schwarber to begin the first inning and the latter would come around to score after stealing home later in the inning. Sanchez then went on to retire nine of the next 11 batters he faced before J.T. Realmuto kicked off a three-run inning with a leadoff double in the fourth. Sanchez had gone eight straight starts without allowing more than three runs coming into Saturday and has now won four of his last five decisions.
