Mark Reynolds may have sent his manager toward a sleepless night.
How is Dave Martinez supposed to rest when he’s got to figure out whether Reynolds’ career night earned him another start Sunday?
“Well, I mean I’m going to sleep just fine. That’s his problem,” Reynolds joked. “I’ll be ready to go either way.”
Reynolds homered twice and drove in a career-high 10 runs, Max Scherzer won for the first time since June 5, and the Washington Nationals beat the visiting Miami Marlins 18-4 on Saturday night.
Washington has won three straight and scored a combined 35 runs since calling a players-only meeting on Wednesday after falling under .500 for the first time since May 2.
