On April 30, 2017, he had a game to remember against the New York Mets. He finished 6-for-6 with his first three homers and a team-record 10 RBIs after entering the game with no homers and only 5 RBIs.
He also had 5 RBIs. After Walker Cooper, he was only the second player in history to have six hits and ten RBIs in the same game.
Two of his home runs were hit by Sean Gilmartin, and the other was hit off by catcher Kevin Plawecki, who was throwing in relief.
The Nationals easily won the game, 23-5. Since Garret Anderson in 2007, he was the first player to drive in ten runs in a game.
Anthony Rendon had another fantastic game on May 23rd, albeit not as historic when he homered twice and drove in five runs in a 10-1 victory over the Seattle Mariners.
That season, he hit .301 in 147 games with 41 doubles, 25 homers, and 100 RBIs, the first of three consecutive seasons with an OPS+ above 135.
He came in sixth place in the MVP voting, his second top ten results.
Rendon, however, had yet another early postseason exit, as the Nationals were eliminated in five games by the Chicago Cubs in the NLDS; he went 3 for 17 with a double and a home run.
