The Washington Nationals put up 23 runs (yes, 23 runs) against the New York Mets on Sunday afternoon. Anthony Rendon hit three home runs and collected 10 RBI (yes, three and 10) on his own — it was a pretty good game for the curly-W wearers. Let’s take a look at some of the best parts.

The bullpen’s stellar performance:

Aside from Anthony Rendon’s incredible-ness, this is the number one thing to be excited about.

If the bullpen actually starts rolling and the team continues to fire on all cylinders, beware.

The team’s slugging percentage on the day:

A perfect slugging percentage, FYI, is 1.025 (slugging percentage is calculated by total bases divided by number of at bats).

A high slugging percentage indicates a lot of extra-base hits, which the Nats did coincidentally have a lot of on Sunday.

The records the team set and the achievements they accomplished:

Everyone from Harper to Rendon to Zimmerman got involved in the Nats’ historic month of April.

Position player pitching!:

Just how, Anthony? How?
