Nats' Bats Go Off, Match Team Record With Six Home Runs In Victory




    Remember that time when the Washington Nationals lost five straight? Yeah, neither do I.

    Since that skid August 22-28, the Nats are 6-1, the most recent win being a 11-5 drubbing of the Chicago Cubs Tuesday at Nationals Park.

    Washington's offense was the key Tuesday; five different players hit six home runs (Adam LaRoche hit two, giving him four in as many games), which matched a franchise record (2005-present, which they set May 20, 2011, in a 17-5 win over the Baltimore Orioles) and tied the league lead for most home runs hit by one team in a game this season.

    The six homers were also the most that any team from Washington, D.C. has ever hit in Washington, D.C.; that includes games at Griffith Stadium, RFK Stadium and Nationals Park.

    Take a look at all six blasts here. if anything else, four minutes worth of a submarine horn should wake you up this morning.
