So Anthony Rendon lost a battle with the DC Sun Monster in the third inning of Game 1 against the Twins on Sunday. "Why isn't he wearing sunglasses!!??" screamed everyone everywhere. "No big deal" said Rendon in his postgame interview on MASN (video here). "No big deal" said Davey Johnson in his postgame presser (video here). Rendon went on to catch two more pop-ups later in the game, following up the second one with a celebratory fist pump. So for those keeping score at home, it's Anthony Rendon 2, DC Sun Monster 1.
Pretty nice little day at the plate for Danny Espinosa's replacement: 2-3, 3 RBI, in a 7-0 wiun that as much a must-win as there ever was on June 9.
Here's a Vine of Rendon's first meeting with the Sun Monster in the third inning. Reading his lips, seems he said "Oh Ship".
