Anthony Rendon went 4 for 5 and hit one of four Washington home runs, and Doug Fister allowed four hits in six innings as the Nationals routed the Texas Rangers 10-2 on Saturday.
Texas Rangers starter Nick Tepesch had solid performances in his previous three starts, winning the last two.
Adam LaRoche, Jose Lobaton, and pinch-hitter Scott Hairston also homered in Washington's offensive surge. The Nationals have racked up 24 runs and 42 hits in their last three games, winning two straight to climb back to .500.

The Texas Rangers hoped to conserve their bullpen against the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday night, their starting rotation ravaged by injuries and young Nick Martinez scheduled to pitch on Sunday.
"He's going to pitch for the Texas Rangers as we move forward at some point for a long time," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "Don't read anything too much into the fact he's been sent back down."
"He was in control of the game," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "He was using his pitches. He was throwing strikes. And that's what he does."
