Jayson Werth has played like one of the best players in all of baseball since the month of July and has clearly been a central reason for the Nats' late season surge.
As Jordan Zimmermann was working towards what he hoped would be a no-hitter on Friday night, Nats second baseman Anthony Rendon made several plays to keep it intact.

[The game has been postponed due to rain. They will play a doubleheader on Sunday with 1:35 p.m. and 7:05 p.m. start times]
