Trea Turner had a bit of a day on Sunday against the Mets

Is a four-run day any good?

MLB: New York Mets at Washington Nationals Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

The Nationals scored six runs en route to a 6-5 win over the New York Mets, but if the entire team was just Trea Turner, they could have eked out a tie.

That’s right: Turner was responsible or involved in at least four of the Nationals’ runs on Sunday, including a monster homer and a walk-off blast.

Turner’s day got started with a 440-foot blast that came off his bat at 110 MPH, scoring Adam Eaton and Victor Robles from first and third.

In the bottom of the fifth, Turner lined a hit off Mets pitcher Zack Wheeler’s leg, stealing second and coming around to score on a single from Anthony Rendon.

He then took part in a nifty double play the next half inning that primarily relied on Brian Dozier’s glove flip but required Turner’s quick pivot to come to fruition.

After the Nationals’ bullpen had a few innings that don’t need to be remembered right at this instance, Turner came up to the plate as the winning run and sent a ball over the left field fence, prompting massive relief—the first win of the season for the Nationals—and a Gatorade celebration.
